93 days to go to National Insect Week

Meadows Day and Bioblitz at Dyrham Park

Saturday, July 2, 2016 - 11:00 to 16:00

Get your face painted, meet our bee keeper, take part in craft activities, photography, watch some scything action and learn all about wild flowers and meadow grasses.  You can even make some wild flower seed bombs, bee hotels and flower crowns with us! 

We will also be hosting a real-life wildlife expedition, searching for and documenting all of the weird and wonderful species in our wildflower meadow.  Families will have the opportunity to become wildlife scientists for the day and discover all the amazing creatures that live with us here at Dyrham. This event, called BioBlitz, is a race to discover all of the wildlife that lives in a single area and you can join the team of wildlife explorers with the help of expert naturalists and scientists for a programme of guided walks and drop-in activities in their pop-up field lab in Whitefield. 

This event is taking place at Whitefield, our wild flower meadow at the far end of the visitor car park.
