BioBlitz 2022

Fri 24 June - Sat 20 August

Botanic Garden

Join us at the Cambridge University Botanic Garden as we explore the wildlife at the Garden, with a range of bookable activities for the whole family. We'll be mini beast hunting, pond dipping, running crafty caterpillar workshops, and much much more! We will also be encouraging everyone to count the wildlife in the Garden and submit any sightings onto iRecord. If you are new to iRecord, look at the Museum of Zoology account on YouTube, where you will find a film by Matt Hayes, who explains how to set up an account.

BioBlitz starts at 5pm on Friday 24 June and finishes at 5pm on Saturday 25 June. The full list of bookable activities will be released soon and announced on the Museum of Zoology blog. Each activity is £5 per person - and this includes your entry to the Botanic Garden (normal entry fee is £6.80 per adult). Children age 16 & under are free of charge.
