Bedgebury National Pinetum, Park Lane, Goudhurst, Kent. TN17 2SL
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 the Bedgebury Bioblitz you can explore the amazing National Pinetum and all of its wildlife as we hold our second Bioblitz event.
Drop in and see us on the day for some amazing activities including:
Moth trapping, bird ringing, wildflower walks, tree-canopy surveying, mammal trapping, bat walks, a look at pondlife and general wildlife walks.
- Start – 9AM on 19th August
- Finish – 5PM on 20th August
