BioBlitz 2017

Join us for our 4th Annual BioBlitz!

Friday, May 19: 6pm – 10pm
Saturday, May 20: 7am – 4pm

What is a BioBlitz?

Think of a BioBlitz as an epic nature scavenger hunt. We will have expert naturalists and volunteers on-site to search Leigh Farm Park for as many species as possible in less than 24 hours. In years past we have documented brand new species to both North Carolina and to the United States! What will we find this year?

Join us and be amazed by the biodiversity that you can find in your own backyard. Don’t know anything about science? Don’t worry! At this free event, you can learn all about who and what lives in your backyard, meet some of our native wildlife ambassadors, become a scientist in the great outdoors, track a box turtle in the woods, play in the creek, and more!

This casual event is a great place to get your feet wet in the science world and can teach you ways to give back to the Earth.
