Join Sheldrake for their first-ever Backyard Bioblitz, a week-long citizen-science project, where you (and your family) are the scientists gathering data. Bioblitzes aim to find, identify, and record as many species as possible throughout the plant, fungus, and animal kingdoms over a short period of time, getting an accurate snapshot of an area’s overall biodiversity. A bioblitz allows scientists, naturalists, families, students, teachers, scout troops, and other community members to work together. Sheldrake’s bioblitz will take place during the week of July 12-18 in your backyard or neighborhood! Get the details on their website, and register in advance to receive additional information about your participation.
