City Nature Challenge BioBlitz (2019)

April 27, 2019 @ 4:00 am - 11:00 am

Help us kick off our Southwest Spring Fest weekend with the Bartram’s BioBlitz! We’ll be posted up from 9am to 4pm trying to find as many species as possible, but you’re welcome to come and go as you please (or even come early! Looking at you, birders.)

This event will occur throughout the site. You can find a map and get help setting up the iNaturalist app at the picnic area by the Barn. We will also have volunteer naturalists posted throughout the Garden to answer your critter questions! Make sure to check out our Spring Plant Sale and other great activities at the Garden this weekend.

A BioBlitz is an event where people search out & document as many plants and animals as possible in a certain area. Anyone welcome to drop in at any time to help us find different species on our site. People will be asked to download the iNaturalist app in order to collect the data of species found.

This event is a part of the City Nature Challenge.
