A 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, fungi, and other organisms as possible.

Become a wildlife explorer for a day and discover what’s living right on your doorstep by joining in at your local BioBlitz event. Experienced naturalists and wildlife watchers need your help to find and identify as many different species as you can before the clock runs out. Just like a real scientific expedition, everything you find will be documented and passed on to local and national databases that monitor wildlife.

With interactive activities for kids, grown-ups, beginners and experts alike there is something for everyone at a BioBlitz.

Go to the National BioBlitz Network website to find out more and how to get involved.
