This weekend you can learn about the natural world while maintaining social distancing. Explore your local area and if you find something that you can’t identify our experts will be happy to help you identify what you found.
If you need help, all you have to do is take a photograph of your find and tag us on Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #BackyardBioblitz and we will tell you what you have found.

Take care when you are exploring. Make sure that you have an adult with you and be very careful near water and plants that have thorns or that sting.

Most of all, make sure that you have fun. And remember that our experts will be happy to help you identify anything that you find.
