Big Nature Day 2012


26 May 2012 23:00 - 23:00

Location: The Natural History Museum, London, UK.

Event description

Big Nature Day will be a celebration of natural history in its broadest sense, bringing a large number of external groups to the Natural History Museum to mark the International Day of Biological Diversity and the contribution of the OPAL (Open Air Laboratories) project to the study of nature in the UK.

The Natural History Museum will be hosting a nature fair, putting thousands of members of the public in touch with amateur naturalists, societies and recording schemes from across the country.  Regardless of whether our visitors are interested in ferns, frogs, spiders or stinkhorns there will be a society or recording scheme to match!

Alongside the nature fair, OPAL staff will be showcasing their national surveys and regional outreach programmes, to demonstrate the impact and legacy of the five year project.  Big Nature Day will also see the launch of a new cub scouts Naturalist Badge, developed by the Natural History Museum, Wildlife Trusts and National Trust, helping to inspire and train a new generation of naturalists like ourselves.

The AES is not involved with the organisation of this event but will be attending.
