Take part in a butterfly survey on a walk with Gibside rangers.

Join our Gibside rangers for a 2 mile walk through the grounds and help to complete a butterfly survey. Record butterfly species you see along the way and learn about the habitats they live in. This walk will take you to lesser-seen parts of Gibside, including hidden ponds where you may spot other wildlife, including dragonflies and birds.

This event is aimed at adults, although interested older children are welcome. Free, booking required.

Please note, the event may need be cancelled for bad weather. Please check your emails on the day before heading to Gibside.

Great Big Green Week is the UK’s biggest ever celebration of community action to tackle climate change and protect nature. This year it runs from Saturday 8 June to Sunday 16 June, and the theme is swaps.
