Friday, June 5 & Saturday, June 6, 2015

A BioBlitz is a 24-hour biological inventory (or scavenger hunt) to find as many plant and animal species as we can!  This FREE festival is a great way to combine research, education and celebration! Learn about the biodiversity of our environment, become a scientist, track a box turtle in the woods, make environmental crafts, and more!
