Nature’s Grand Designs at Booth Museum for Nature2020

Becoming carbon neutral by 2030

Booth Museum, as part of a year long calendar of Nature2020 events throughout the city, are hosting a Discovery Day on Friday 21 February on Nature’s Grand Designs.

You can see miniature homes under the microscope, make your own bird’s nest with RSPB, find out about plans to restore the Sussex kelp forest with Brighton Dolphin Project and chat with the curators to discover the strangest home invaders.

The Discovery Day will run as a 10:30am to 4pm drop-in, is free for all ages and will use a first-come, first-served policy.

Nature2020

Nature2020 is an exciting year-long program of events and activities aimed at educating and engaging residents, young people, communities and visitors to enable them to get involved in combatting the climate emergency and encourage projects that support natural habitat creation and biodiversity.

Brighton & Hove City Council are proud to support Nature2020 as it closely aligns with our commitment to become carbon neutral by 2030.

Councillor Alan Robins, Chair of the Tourism, Equalities, Communities & Culture Committee said: “As a council we have declared a climate emergency. 

“We are lucky to have such a diverse climate on our doorstop in Brighton & Hove so it is the responsibility of all of us to contribute to keeping it this way. 

“I’m glad to welcome Nature2020 as it can help to inspire us to connect with our natural environment and understand what we can do to make a difference.”
