Join an event near you to discover and explore your local green space and become a wildlife scientist for a day
"Bio" means "life" and "Blitz" means "do something very quickly and intensively". Together they make ‘BioBlitz’: a fun and exciting event where you can join naturalists, scientists, and volunteers in a race against time to survey of all forms of life in a green space.
Each species you discover is written down to make a wildlife record, helping to monitor the diversity of life in our local parks, gardens and nature reserves.
From pond dipping and bug hunting to bat detectors and bird watching - there is something at a BioBlitz for everyone and you don’t need to be an expert to get involved!
