Hyde Park Bioblitz - City Nature Challenge 2019
Take part in a global competition by finding and identifying nature in London.
London is competing with over 160 cities worldwide to find and record the most wildlife across the city in a four day period. You can find out more at www.citynaturechallenge.org.
As part of the challenge we are holding a BioBlitz - a 24 hour nature survey - in Hyde Park. A team of dedicated scientists, naturalists and volunteers will be available to help you identify all the animals, plants and other living things you find. The information collected from your observations will help to create a valuable record of London’s biodiversity.
There is also an exciting programme of free guided walks, drop in activities and nature themed stalls.
