Saturday 6th May
Penryn Campus, Penryn, TR10 9EZ
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 Bioblitz Penryn & Garden Fete you can explore the amazing Penryn Campus as we team up with our very own Garden Fete to bring you a day wildlife celebration, summer games, fayre stalls and interactive activities so there’s plenty for everyone!
Drop in and see us on the day for some amazing activities including:
Pond dipping, Moth trapping, Bug hunting, Mammal trapping, Plant spotting, Bat walks and Garden games. Enjoy our raffle with amazing prizes, make your own wildlife with our arts and craft stalls, get competitive in our summer games, get your face painted, and have a jump on the bouncy castle!
