Exhibition: Nature Detectives

Come along to our exhibition about citizen science and wildlife surveying, before heading out onto the estate and having a go yourself.

  • Booking not needed

Ashridge is an important habitat for lots of species of plants, animals and fungi. Our rangers take time to survey them each year to work out how many we have and how we can encourage them to thrive. This exhibition will tell you about their work, as well as how you can get involved yourself.

From our what to see this month wall, to our microscope and kid-friendly activities, there's lots of ways for you to try Citizen Science.
