Event description

Description

Come join us for the fourth annual Mount Arrowsmith Biosphere Region (MABR) BioBlitz at Milner Gardens & Woodland. The MABR BioBlitz is a citizen science based event that connects community members with local experts to conduct a rapid biological survey of plant and animal species. Participants are grouped together with Vancouver Island University student volunteers and local experts to identify as many plant and animal species as possible during the event. The event is broken up into two sessions (morning and afternoon) and participants are welcome to register for either the morning or afternoon session or both sessions. There will be a 1-hour break from 12:00 pm- 1:00 pm to allow for transition between BioBlitz sessions. No prior experience is necessary for this event as it's designed to introduce those with some or no experience to species identification. Data collected at the event will summarized and made publicly available after the event. All ages welcome!
