A Cottage Country BioBlitz
Summer is a very exciting time to be out in the natural world. What better way to learn about what’s out there than participating in a BioBlitz! A BioBlitz is a community event where naturalists from all fields of wildlife expertise come to survey a specific parcel of land. They list all of the plants and animals they can find, and usually take community participants on a short walk to share some of their knowledge. By repeating a BioBlitz every few years, communities can track changes in their local environment and monitor the presence of Species at Risk that may be living in their area. A BioBlitz is also a great way to engage the local community in environmental education while they learn about new things and familiar things that live right in their own back yard.
