Thank you to everyone who came out to BioBlitz 2016, as well as all of those who volunteered. We look forward to seeing you all at next year’s BioBlitz!
As defined by National Geographic, “BioBlitz is a 24-hour event in which teams of volunteer scientists, families, students, teachers, and other community members work together to find and identify as many species of plants, animals, microbes, fungi, and other organisms as possible”.
Georgia Geographic Alliance will be hosting its first ever BioBlitz on May 21, 2016 at the Clyde Shepherd Nature Preserve (CSNP).
This day will be filled with guided tours, arts & crafts, biological inventory taking, food, drinks, and fun! These activities will be geared towards the science standards of K-12 grades while providing fun and scientific intrigue for those of all ages.
An “oasis in suburbia” located in Decatur, Georgia, CSNP is a 28 acre sanctuary for wildlife encompassing wetlands, uplands forests, and pine forests along the floodplain of South Peachtree Creek. This event will be geared towards the science standards of K-12 grades while providing fun and scientific intrigue for those of all ages. We will be updating this page with more information as the event gets closer.
