On 27 July, the Booth Museum is hosting an urban wildlife day. This event is being held to support the city’s bid to make our surrounding countryside and coastline a UNESCO biosphere reserve.

The day will consist of a variety of family friendly events which should bring members of the public into closer contact with many of the species found minutes from our doorstep. Events will include the BHCC rangers using objects from the Booth collections to allow visitors to get up close to many of the beasts who have made our town and the green spaces around the urban area their home.

Dr Gerald Legg will be talking about local marine life and the Marine Conservation Zone located off-shore of Brighton, which makes up part of the proposed biosphere reserve.

There will also be a number of tables and booths with staff and volunteers on hand to try and identify objects you may have found, as well as showing other items from our collections.
