Earth Day Mini BioBlitz

Friday April 22nd @ 4:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Calling all curious humans! Let’s celebrate Earth Day together by getting out there and finding all the life that surrounds us, both small and large. A BioBlitz is an event that focuses on finding and identifying as many living species as possible. From fungi to trees, mammals to insects and everything in between, we will try to catch ‘em all at Barlow Nature Preserve

This is a free, all-ages, all-abilities and family-friendly event – it doesn’t matter if you are an expert naturalist or have never stepped into the woods before. The event will be from 4pm to 8pm, but participants can arrive or leave any time they would like to.

There will be snack and refreshments and a whole bunch of adventure!

There are some great tools out there besides field guides and experts that can help you identify all kinds of different species of plants and animals out there. Be sure to download apps like iNaturalist or Seek from the App Store. Play around with them and be sure to show up with a full battery when you join us!

Any questions? Email Marc Doherty at [email protected].
