Event description

Description

A BioBlitz is an opportunity to explore a piece of property to discover all the living things that call it home. Trees, birds, insects, butterflies, salamanders and more - literally every living thing! Experts will help to identify the species, giving volunteers a chance to learn more about them and learn how to properly document the observations for science. You will help to contribute to valuable Citizen Science!
