Visitors discover diversity at Imperial College

From hunting for British bugs to identifying rare species from the African rainforest, visitors of all ages explored the variety of the natural world at Imperial College’s Silwood Park Campus on Saturday.

Discover diversity: The planet's wildlife on your doorstep gave staff, students, local families and schoolchildren the chance to learn about the wildlife all around them.


Community Environment Report – OPAL achievements and findings 2007-2012


Over the first five years of the OPAL project, more than half a million people from towns and cities up and down the country explored their local green spaces.

Many participants were carrying out a nature survey for the very first time and provided important data about biodiversity, including information about some places never sampled before by scientists.

The interim findings of these years were published in OPAL's Community Environment Report.

Silwood Park science fun day

As promised here are some piccies from the event we went to last weekend (10th July) at Silwood Park near Ascot.  We were lucky to have a gorgeous sunny day (unlike the wet weekend just gone!)  and there were loads of fun activities.  Here is just a small selection...

The Silwood Park main building - what a nice place to go to work - it was very peaceful there with lots of trees and open space. I was envious (but then I do get to walk underneath a dinosaur to get to my office each morning which is also pretty cool!).
