National Insect Week returns in 2020

Informal Mini Bioblitz at Orchard Park

Monday, June 18, 2018 - 15:15 to 17:15

Join us at 3.20pm on 18 June at the beginning of National Insect Week for an informal mini Bioblitz of the Wildflower Bank, Ring Fort Rd, CB4 2GR.

The event will run for two hours and you’re welcome to join us for as little or long as you like.

All equipment will be provided.

Sadly, many people don’t realise what a precious resource the Wildflower Bank is – the UK has lost 97% of its wildflower meadows since WWII and that’s having a negative impact on the insects that rely on it, and in turn the birds and bats that feed on them.
