Help Bury Water Meadows Group hunt for as many species of plant and animal that can be found in the Abbey Gardens precinct and water meadows

This is part of a series of events celebrating 1,000 years since the founding of St. Edmund’s Abbey.

‘Bio’ means ‘life’ and ‘Blitz’ means ‘to do something quickly and intensively’. Together they make ‘BioBlitz’, a collaborative race against the clock to discover as many species of plants, animals and fungi as possible, within a set location, over a defined time period (usually 24 hours).

Please come to the BioBlitz Hub in the middle of the Abbey Gardens or join one of the walks (booking essential) to help record the species that live in the Abbey Precinct which includes the Abbey Gardens, the Great Churchyard and the water meadows known as the Crankles and No Man’s Meadow and along the river Lark.

Suitable for families and children must be accompanied by an adult. Please wear suitable clothing.
