7th – 8th July
Catherington Down, Horndean, PO8 0TE
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 BioBlitz you can explore the amazing Catherington Down as we discover what’s living in the grass downland.
Drop in and see us on the day or follow the link to our facebook to get an up to date programme for some amazing activities including:
Wildflower surveys, Butterfly walk, Bat walk, Mini-beast hunt, Spider spotting, Moth trapping, Mammal talks, Dawn chorus walk, Camera traps, Bug hunting, Tree trails and many more talks & demonstrations from local experts
