About this event

The 19th century mathematician Augustus De Morgan penned the ditty “Big fleas have little fleas upon their backs to bite 'em, and little fleas have lesser fleas, and so, ad infinitum”, highlighting what is a general rule in nature: larger things eat smaller things. This rule is broken when biodiversity is lost, as is happening more and more in our countryside, with unknown consequences for ecosystems. Come and see how the biological communities of interacting organisms at Three Hagges Woodmeadow are responding to our efforts to recover biodiversity and the complex links between species. If you are interested in nature and science, come and explore all this with expert naturalists in a beautiful natural setting.
