About the Event

Are you curious about the different plants, wildlife, insects, and other species that live around you? Join the Town of Hampton to explore alongside experts to identify and learn about the species that live in the Town Forest!

BioBlitz is a one-day nature scavenger hunt where people explore alongside scientists and field experts to find as many different plants, wildlife, insects, fungi, and other species on a property as possible. Meet experts, improve your naturalist skills and help the town of Hampton learn about their town forest! No experience necessary.
