Are you a budding scientist or natural history enthusiast (perhaps the future Chris Packham or Michaela Strachan!)? If you like being outside, hunting for bugs and spotting wildlife, then this Summer Mix one-day course is for you!
The Plymouth Woodland Project, run by the School of Biological Sciences at Plymouth University, are hosting this fun event at Radford Woods, where you have a chance to learn from real scientists and discover some interesting creatures and plants living right on your doorstep.
Activities include a woodland bug hunt where you will learn to identify different invertebrates while helping with real research to uncover what bugs live in urban woodlands. You will take part in the Woodland Plant Trail, check our overnight live mammal traps, and go pond-dipping to find newts, dragonfly larvae and search for the elusive water spider!
You will need to dress suitably for the activity and bring drinks and lunch. Meet in the Bird Hide, just inside the entrance to Radford Woods, off White Lady Road.
