Opal held an event in Springfield to carry out bug surveys. Children from the local primary schools Hester's Way and Springbank Primary Academy spent 2 hours exploring the site to identify the insects that can be found in the park. The findings were added to the completed survey which has allowed the Opal scientists to form an in-depth database of the surveys.
