Want to help us monitor the bumblebees in Wytham Woods? As part of our citizen science scheme in the Woods, we are holding regular guided 'Bumblebee Walks' where you can also monitor wildflowers. No experience necessary, equipment provided, you just need your own lunch (if you plan to stay later for the Butterfly monitoring), sensible footwear, and enthusiasm!

Meet at 9.45am in Wytham Woods car park for an 10am start, finishing by 1pm.

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.

If you have any enquiries about the walks place email us at wytham.woods@admin.ox.ac.uk or oxfordplanbee@gmail.com
