Ready for a nature adventure?

No matter the weather there's exploring fun to be had in Bio:Space. 

Come and watch the ant colony. Discover what job each ant does. See the mealworms and beetles. Did you know they like to munch on card and polystyrene?

Explore outside in the South Downs National Park. It's an amazing place to find out about nature and how we can all keep it safe and special for everyone to enjoy.

Don't forget your hat and coat – we'll be going outside whether it's sunny or rainy.
