I particularly enjoyed visiting the different Primary and Secondary schools in the Southampton area when trying to promote the BioBlitz event. Not only were we able to teach the children about biodiversity within their school grounds (e.g. how to measure it, what equipment they might need etc) but we were also able to inspire some of the children with the work we had carried out.
