29th/30th April 2017

Gatton Park, RH2 0TW

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 the Gatton BioBlitz you can explore the amazing Gatton Park as we celebrate nature. Drop in and see us on Sunday 30th April 12-5pm for bumblebees, plants, and visits to our bird hide!
