Garden Competition

Fill in our garden survey and win your own Bioblitz

Win your own garden BioBlitz!

Alongside the 2018 Great Wildlife Expedition (at Hengistbury Head on June 9th), we are offering you the chance to have a BioBlitz in your own garden!

Check out our poster for all the details (and display it to show you've entered!), and download our entry form.

The winner of our Great Wildlife Garden Competition will have a team of experts take over their outdoor space on June 16th.

Using detectors, hand lenses and lots of books, we will identify bats, mammals, moths, birds and plants that live in, or visit your garden. You will be able to spend time with the team and learn the difference between the species that thrive on the work you have done to make your garden a place for nature.

We will also show you where to go to record your finds, adding these species to Bournemouth’s wildlife map. We are also bringing along a talented local film maker who will capture the day, the activities and the excitement of identifying the plants and creatures that live in your garden.

Enter before 30th April 2018

To enter, we want you to use the entry form to tell us about your garden, your household, and any wildlife that you have seen in, or nearby, your garden. Please send your entry via email to us.

The closing date is the 30th April 2018 and the winner will be chosen by the Hengistbury Head Ranger team.

Terms and conditions apply - see poster for details.
