Big Nature Day at Natural History Museum. 

Last year, BSBI had a stand at Big Nature Day, a one-day family event at the Natural History Museum. We joined other wildlife and conservation bodies to introduce young people to the delights of the natural world.

It was a great day and we've been invited back this year, so we are now looking for people to help out on the stand. Three volunteers are needed on 13th July - I'm afraid we can't pay you, but your travel costs would be covered and you would get a free lunch and a chance to look round the other exhibits, both at the event and inside the Natural History Museum (without queueing for ages to get in!). You would also have the chance to tell people about BSBI and show them how botanists ID plants and how our work supports nature conservation. The aim of the day is to get people - especially children - interested in nature and show them how to get started recording wildlife.

More info here and some photos of last year's event here. Please email us at if you think you might be interested in helping out at this year's Big Nature Day.
