Whiteknights BioBlitz

The BioBlitz will begin at 5pm on Friday 7th and end at 5pm on Saturday 8th June. Come along to help us identify as many species as possible. How many will you find?

What is a BioBlitz?

A ‘BioBlitz’ is a large scale event run over 24 hours where people come together to identify as many species as possible. We are bringing together scientists, naturalists, local community groups, students and the public to learn about the vast biodiversity on Whiteknights campus.

How can you get involved?

Everyone is welcome to this free event; take a look at our events page to see what activities are happening over the 24 hours. Join us on one of our guided walks, help us with ID in the lab, come along to a lecture about local wildlife or just visit the environmental fair.

Where is it taking place?

The BioBlitz is taking place at the University of Reading’s Whiteknights campus. The 134 hectare site contains woodland, meadows, open grassland, a botanic garden and lake. The campus was voted as the most highly rated university green space in 2012’s Green Flag People’s Choice Award, and is very biodiverse.
