The Big Stowe BioBlitz

Join us in our quest to find as many species at Stowe as possible!

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

A ‘BioBlitz’ is an attempt to record as much biodiversity as possible within one day, and we need your help! Join us as we look at all nature, from insects to trees to mammals to fungi to wildflowers to reptiles – and everything in between. To complete our challenge, we need as many eyes on the ground as possible – and everyone of all ages and abilities is welcome!

We are running the BioBlitz through iNaturalist which helps ID species from a photo so all you need is a bit of an enthusiasm and either a phone to download the iNaturalist app on, or a camera to take photos to then upload on the iNaturalist website at home. The data you collect will contribute to national citizen science records through iNaturalist and be used by us at Stowe to inform our management to increase biodiversity.
