Garden Bioblitz 2014


Garden Bioblitz 2013 - Dates Announced!

Firstly, thank you for showing an interest in the Garden Bioblitz.

It might be the depths of winter, but we've been beavering away making plans and can now announce that this year’s Garden Bioblitz will take place over the weekend of the 1st and 2nd of June 2013. Please put the date in your diary!

For more information on how to take part please check out our website

This year, by popular demand, we’ll also be including a “Blitz List” of some of the species you are most likely to find in your garden. So if you are feeling a bit daunted at the thought of writing down everything you find, why not start with our Blitz List? We’ll be adding a PDF to our website explaining what's in the list, plus we'll be blogging updates on how to spot and identify the species.

Of course, if you fancy looking for more than just the Blitz List species, don’t let us stop you! Last year quite a few of you found around 50 species, some of you found over 100 species, and Richard "The Expert" Comont found 236 species in his garden.

Over the next few month's we’ll be keeping you updated with tips, advice and stories of how to make the most of your Garden Bioblitz, but if you have any questions don’t hesitate to tweet us at @GardenBioblitz or leave a comment at the bottom of our website home page. We’d love to hear from you!

Lastly, can you help us? Do you know anyone who'd like to take part? If you do please tweet this email along with the hashtag #gbb13 (there's a link to the online version at the top of this email), add it to Facebook or email it to your friends, colleagues or family. The Garden Bioblitz is open to "everyone" this year, so it would be fantastic if you could help to spread the word. Thank you.

Best wishes
