City Nature Challenge – Wildflower Lewes BioBlitz Walk Malling Down
Are you a nature lover? Want to learn more about Wildflower Lewes and our objectives? Would you like to spend some time learning and sharing knowledge of the habitats in and around Lewes? Then join us on one of our City Nature Challenge 2022 bioblitz walks!
City Nature Challenge is a world wide bioblitz weekend using the INaturalist app (a bioblitz is a survey where every living species is recorded). For this we’ve organised two short walks that will take in both the local downland and some of Wildflower Lewes’ road verges. Here we can talk about how our verges and wildflowers provide valuable habitat and connectivity for nature within the town.
The focus will be wildflowers but we will be attempting to record anything and everything that we find.
Saturday 30th April 2:00-4:00 Landport Bottom and Wallands
Meet at The Gallops, Nevill Road junction.
Sunday 1st May10:30-12:30 Malling Down and South Malling
