Part of the Mayor of London's National Park City Festival.
98 species were identified in the 2018 BioBlitz - we need your help to take us to three figures!
From creepy-crawlies and woodland beetles to glorious bees, butterflies and other summer pollinators, the 2019 BioBlitz is a great chance for the whole family to get hands-on in the quest to support biodiversity across the Community Forest.
With identification hotspots across the Broadfields site - home of the Forest Centre - this year's event will add to the rich data from 2018 to build up a better picture of the wildlife that calls this place home.
Specialist activities schedule
All activities are drop-in, and start from basecamp. Please aim to arrive five minutes before scheduled start time.
10:00 - Meet the moths.
We'll be hanging our special (humane) trap overnight on site to see which of our nighttime flutterers find their way in - once recorded, we'll let them go back into the wild.
11:30 - Riverfly review.
With a specialist instructor, head down to the stream at the north side of Broadfields to see which buzzing insects can be spotted on site.
13:30 - Reptile discovery.
Over the last week we've put down some special metal mats to attract our reptilian friends out of hiding. Will there be any lurking when we go for a special guided walk?
This event is coordinated by Land of the Fanns.
Interact on social media using the hashtag #TCBioBlitz.
In addition to the BioBlitz, the July craft market is taking place in the Essex Barn and Education Room.
