Come and join the race to find as much wildlife as we can! A BioBlitz is a large scale event that engages people with biodiversity, inviting them to get directly involved in surveying and monitoring their local wildlife and green spaces. During a BioBlitz event scientists and members of the public work together to survey a natural space; looking for, identifying and recording as many species as possible over one day.
Marwell is known for its more exotic residents, but why not join us as a ranger on one of our surveys and help us count and identify as many different species we can! Get involved in the big count!
We are offering members a chance to join us to gain a greater understanding of the native species on our doorstep. Sign up for one or more of our timetabled sessions and become a ranger.
As a ranger you will join other volunteers to survey a zone by identifying as much of the wildlife possible within the area.
It's sure to be a fun day all round with arts and crafts, face painting, and identification tables, it's a great chance to get close up to nature and learn about the local biodiversity of Marwell.
The day will begin at 10.30 and finish at 16.00 and will take place around the science and learning centre. You can also get the opportunity to ask our experts any questions you may have on local nature.
3 of the 4 timetabled survey sessions must be booked in advance by ordering your free (members only) ticket. The final session can be booked on the day during your park visit. Note this is a first come-first served basis so sign up early to avoid disappointment.
