50 things to do before you're 11 3/4 & the Clumber Park Bioblitz

50 things to do before youre 11 3/4

Fancy exploring the outdoors, learning new skills and trying new things? Grab your gear and start ticking off some of our 50 things to do before you're 11 ¾, or join the Discovery Centre team on their Bioblitz.

Bioblitz at Clumber Park

Join the Discovery Centre team throughout July and August as we make a dash around the park to discover and record our amazing diversity of species.

It could include a blitz on spiders, trees, birds, butterlies or bugs as we look for target species, some common and some not so common. With different target species on different days, there's always enough to keep you and the family coming back for more.

The Bioblitz is suitable for all ages. but as this activity will include us going off the beaten path to track down our creatures and critters it is not generally suitable for pushchairs and under 5’s. However, we do offer a Bioblitz every Wednesday, when we will keep to the paths and are pushchair and buggy friendly.

For more information on dates and times of the Bioblitzing, please refer to our events listing page.
