The’Bioblitz HQ – the ‘Bunker’ will be in the community garden where a variety of other local wildlife groups will help with activities with powerful microscopes, bug hunts for children to create a snapshot of the variety of life that can be found in an area. Just like a real scientific expedition, everything found during the BioBlitz will be documented and passed on to national databases to monitor changes in local wildlife.
The event starts at 2pm on Saturday, July 7 and runs until 2pm on Sunday with activities including pond dipping, bug walks, moth talks, spider hunts amongst lots of others.
