Minsmere BioBlitz

Back to Events

Between Saturday 27th May and Sunday 4th June 2017

RSPB Minsmere, IP17 3BY

Become a wildlife explorer for a day and discover what’s living right on your doorstep by joining in at your local BioBlitz event. Our team of experienced naturalists and wildlife watchers need your help to find and identify as many different species of birds, bugs, plants and beasties as we can before the clock runs out. Just like a real scientific expedition, everything we find will be documented and passed on to local and national databases that monitor our local wildlife. With interactive activities for kids, grown-ups, beginners and experts alike there is something for everyone at a BioBlitz.

What’s happening

At Minsmere Bioblitz you can explore the amazing nature reserve as we celebrate our 70th anniversary, and try to find as many of the 5700 recorded species on site, we may even find something new!
