Wildlife enthusiasts and families are being encouraged to take part in the RSPB’s summer BioBlitz at St Aidan’s nature park at Allerton Bywater.
The free event is a family friendly event aimed at discovering and recording as many plants and animals as possible within a set area and time. It runs from 6pm on Friday July 19 to 6pm on Sunday July 21.
The RSPB will be joined by the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust, Bumblebee Conservation Trust and other wildlife experts, with a variety of guided walks and family friendly activities aimed at discovering what lives within the 1,000 acre park.
Rob Conn, community ranger, said: “It’s a fun way to learn about and connect with wildlife. We want families to have fun while learning how they can help give nature a home.”
