Wild Day Out

  • 1st April 2017
  • 10am until 4pm
  • Holyrood Park, Edinburgh

Join the RSPB and Historic Environment Scotland for a wild day out exploring the rugged volcanic world of Holyrood Park. You’ll find out more about the range of wildlife that inhabits this ancient landscape when you take part in a range of free activities. You could choose from walking tours of the park, a series of talks, mini beast hunts and lots more. 

You will also be able to find out what amazing wildlife you can spot in your own back garden and find out how you can help make space for nature in your very own mini nature reserve.

Duddingston Bioblitz Festival

  • 17 June 2017
  • 6 am until 11 pm 
  • Duddingston Kirk Hall

Become a wildlife explorer for a day and discover what’s living right on your doorstep by joining in at your local BioBlitz event. Our team of experienced naturalists need your help to find and identify as many different species of birds, mammals, plants and beasties as we can before the clock runs out.

Just like a real scientific expedition, everything we find will be documented and passed on to local and national databases that monitor our local wildlife. With interactive activities for kids, grown-ups, beginners and experts alike there is something for everyone at a BioBlitz.

If you have any questions about the event please call 0131 317 4100 or email amber.jenkins@rspb.org.uk
