Join us for BioBlitz Cambridge 2014 on 27–28 June
From 5pm on Friday 27 June, join experts and volunteers as they race against time to find as many species as possible in 24 hours in the beautiful grounds of Madingley Hall.
This is the fifth annual Cambridge BioBlitz coordinated by the Museum of Zoology and University of Cambridge Public Engagement Team, and this year working in partnership with the Institute of Continuing Education. The aim is to document the array of plants and animals that can be found in this magnificent site, from the largest trees down to tiny snails and insects, and to give lots of opportunities for people to discover the fascinating wildlife on their doorstep.
This event is open to everyone and all activities are free. No previous knowledge of natural history is needed – there are experts to introduce you to some of the UK’s fantastic wildlife and guide you through how to record it. There are lots of hands-on activities, such as moth trapping, early morning bird walks, minibeast hunts and pond dipping.
Bioblitz Cambridge 2014 starts at 5pm on Friday and runs through the night, finishing at 5pm on Saturday. Most of the activities will be taking place from 10am – 5pm on Saturday 28 June. All late night and early morning activities need to be booked in advance, and booking is advisable for other activities.
