Want to help us monitor the bumblebees in Wytham Woods? As part of an exciting new citizen science scheme in the Woods, we are holding regular guided 'Bumblebee Walks'. No experience necessary, equipment provided, you just need your own lunch, sensible footwear, and enthusiasm!

Meet at 10.45am in Wytham Woods car park for an 11am start, finishing by 3pm.

The data collected as part of these walks are an essential component of our long-term monitoring of wildlife in the Woods, and will be used to inform our management decisions, and also utilised by scientists working in the Woods.
