Nature is taking over! As we spend more time in our homes, we want to encourage families, young people, and adults to explore their natural environment and join us for a BioBlitz!

You will explore Sarehole Mill’s outdoor spaces, including our historic courtyard and Woodland Realm, recording the plants, animals, and insects you find. Our Natural Science Curator will help you identify and record your finds.

Each child will receive a Bug Collector take home (while stocks last), to help study their finds, as well as a spotter’s guide and worksheet. Get hands on with animal specimens and activities to explore the science behind Climate Change.

This event is free and drop-in, arrive at any time between 11.00 – 4.00 to take part. Spend 4mins or 4hours on your BioBlitz!

What is a BioBlitz?

A BioBlitz focuses on a specific area, finding and identifying as many species as possible in a short period of time giving a snapshot of the area’s biodiversity.

The data people collect can also be shared with regional wildlife data collecting programmes and apps which all help us better understand the world around us and our contribution to it.

Get involved and get recording!
