April 30 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
A bioblitz is a celebration of biodiversity, where volunteers help trained educators and scientists find as many species as possible in one place on one day. This event is a part of the NC Science Festival. Participants of all ages can learn techniques for observing and collecting plant and animal data. You never imagined how much life is all around us until you start looking. We’ll have pond dipping classes, insect collection, birding, and more. Participants of all ages are welcome!
If you’d like to be able to enter your data immediately, you can download the free iNaturalist app for your phone. Families with children may also consider using the free EcoExplore App which allows children to earn points and prizes for pictures they submit. We will also have paper data sheets available. Water and snacks will be available for volunteers.
Park Ranger Haley Anderson from Carvers Creek State Park will lead a Wildflower Hike at 10 am.
Graduate students from NC State University’s Entomology Program will be here to help volunteers learn about insects in our region.
Please preregister here. This event is completely FREE. No admission or membership is required. All ages welcome. An adult must stay with any child under age 16.
