Saturday 17th June 2017
Duddingston, EH15 3PX

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 Duddingston Bioblitz you can explore the amazing area of Duddingston as we celebrate the incredible wildlife on site.

Drop in and see us on the day, although some activities you will need to book beforehand, more details will be available soon. There will be lots to do on the day such as Bumblebee and Butterfly walks, talks & demonstrations on gardening for wildlife, small mammal, tracks & signs walks, practical activities, stalls (information/membership), reptile rambles, pond dipping, moth trapping, dawn-chorus walk, camera traps, bug hunting and bat walks.

• Start – 6AM on Saturday 17th June
• Finish – 11PM on Saturday 17th June
