Event details

Thu, 26/07/2018 - 11:00am - 2:00pm

A family-friendly day to celebrate the amazing invertebrates that are so vital to our world

Join us for this family event to celebrate the weird and wonderful insects that are so important to Sydenham Hill Wood and the ecosystems we depend on for survival.

If you love bees, butterflies, dragonflies, beetles, bugs and slugs, you will love bug day!

We'll be leading pond dipping sessions to discover the wild world underneath the surface of the Dewy Pond, searching for beetles and creepy crawlies under logs, and identifying butterflies and bees in the Wood's sunny glades.
