bioblitz2014Part scientific endeavor, part festival, and part education, the BioBlitz at Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park will bring together leading scientists, naturalists, and community members of all ages to find and document as many species as possible in one day at the park on July 19th as part of the Vermont Atlas of Life. Step outside with us and become part of a growing network of “citizen scientists”. Curiosity required, no experience necessary!

A BioBlitz is an intensive one-day study of biodiversity in a specific location, bringing scientists and volunteer citizen-scientists together. We’ll look for birds, mammals,reptiles, butterflies, insects, spiders, trees, flowers, mushrooms, and more!

People of all ages and skill levels are welcome! Festivities begin at 7am and last until after dusk under the moth lights. Come anytime. We’ll be headquartered at the Forest Center building near route 12. Bring your smart phone for sure. Bonus: camera, binoculars, magnifying glasses, butterfly nets, gardening gloves, and other goodies if you’ve got ‘em.We’ll enter observations in iNaturalist and maintain eBird and e-Butterfly lists for the day.
