BioBlitz

A young citizen scientist.

What's a BioBlitz, besides being a lot of fun?

A BioBlitz is when schoolkids, scientists and the general public team up for a day of fieldwork. Together, they count, map and study a park's diverse organisms, ranging from microscopic bacteria to moose.

The program adds to a park's official species lists, and helps highlight the importance of local and regional biodiversity.
