5th & 6th August
Hazleton Common Local Nature Reserve
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 Hazleton Common BioBlitz 2016 you can explore the amazing wildlife within the nature reserve as we survey as many species as possible during the two day event.
