Event location

Please note that this event is NOT taking place at the Museum in South Kensington, but in Hyde Park, at The Lookout (location map). 

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.
