Hanley Park ST1 4 DX

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 Hanley Park BioBlitz you can explore the amazing park as we join with specialists to discover how many different types of wildlife we can find. There will be some displays from different organisations, timed activities and self-led trails.  Can you guess how many different species we will find?  Can you take some amazing photos of wildlife that you find in the park on the day?

Drop in and see us on the day for some amazing activities including:

Displays from different local environmental organisations.  Join in with a butterfly count, pond dipping, bird surveys,  minibeast safari, earthworm charming and surveying, possible small mammal print investigation, tree trail and spotter sheets.
