Welcome to the 2016 (2nd Annual) BioBlitz!
You bring your smartphone and enthusiasm, and together we’ll look for birds, mammals, reptiles, butterflies, insects, spiders, trees, and flowers within the Sagehen Creek Field Station. A BioBllitz is a detailed study of biodiversity in a specific location over a specified period of time, bringing experts and volunteers together. People of all ages and skill levels are welcome! Here is a link to video of last year's Bioblitz.
We’ll enter our observations in iNaturalist and maintain eBird lists. To check out some of the cool stuff we may see click here. Don't have an iNat account yet? No problem!
