We invite the public to celebrate our 40th anniversary, get outside, and explore at the TNI Earth Day BioBlitz on Saturday, September 12, 2020, 10 am – 2 pm, rain or shine. A BioBlitz is an opportunity to gather as much biological data as possible in a short period of time. Started in 1997, BioBlitzes are held all over the world involving thousands of people every year in citizen science.
The BioBlitz Basecamp will be housed under a large event tent, comprised of booths, information, and activities like face painting, ‘Ask a Scientist’, and viewing microscopes. Pig On A Wing food truck will be in the parking lot for people to purchase food from 11-1:30. Attendees can choose to sign up for expert-led Explorations, or inventory species on their own using the iNaturalist app. Each Exploration will be focused on a specific subject, such as insects, wildflowers, birds, etc. Exploration hikes will be of varying distances and levels of difficulty, and there is something for everyone!
