San Juan Island National Historical Park is organizing its second annual free BioBlitz event at both park units -- American Camp and English Camp. This year they will be focusing on amphibians and birds, though the event is open to any taxonomic interest.
A BioBlitz is a unique combination of taxonomic inventory, public outreach and science education. At its core, the BioBlitz is a species inventory in which teams of volunteers, each led by an expert scientist, find, identify, and photograph as many species as possible within a defined amount of time. This snapshot view helps us look at many different habitats over the same period, and better understand what lives in the park.
"The success of a BioBlitz depends greatly on the knowledge and enthusiasm of the participants," said Raena Parsons, park education specialist. "Come join us and share your knowledge."
