About this Event

The BioBlitz is in Leicester on 17th and 18th May for its 9th consecutive year and provides us with just 24-hours to identify as many plants and animals as possible.

Helped by experts and naturalists you will be invited to take part and learn about the wildlife that live here and where to find them during that time. An ambitious target of 500 species has been set to find wildlife ranging from bats to butterflies, frogs to flowers and many other bugs and insects.

This year Belgrave Hall Gardens and St Peters Churchyard have been chosen and it promises to be a wonderful place to visit and explore with their great mix of habitats from woodland, formal gardens, glass houses and churchyard.

We have organised a range of guided walks covering bats, birds, bugs and plants along with setting up cameras and traps to see the different mammals that share these special places with us.

Free drinks and light refreshment will be available in the Courtyard Cafe before or after the events. Please arrive 15 mins before your event to register.

Parking is available at Vicarage Lane to the rear of Belgrave Hall Gardens with access into Gardens from this point

When attending, please dress appropriately for the weather conditions (rain coat/warm clothes/sun hat!) and wear comfortable sturdy shoes (trainers are fine)

Please note: As this is an event to search for wildlife, we regret that dogs are not permitted on these walks.
