BIOBLITZ FAMILY FUN @ FLAG FEN

Get closer to nature at the Bronze Age BioBlitz at Flag Fen on Saturday August 2!

From 10am-5pm, it’s a great opportunity to explore the landscape and wonderful wildlife with nature experts.

Flag Fen’s positioning in the Fens gives it excellent biodiversity, making it the perfect location to discover more about wildlife in the local area. As well as learning about the wildlife you can see now, hear about Bronze Age Beasts that roamed Britain long ago.
