Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th June 2017
Morden Hall Park, Morden, Surrey, SM4 5JD
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.
At BioBlitz 2017 you can explore the amazing Morden Hall Park as we help you find, identify and record as many species as possible over this fun-filled weekend.
3rd June – This is our action-packed day of species recording across the park, with lots of great activities to get involved with and experts from different organisations to speak to.
