About the Event
Join Antioch University New England adjunct professor, Steven Lamonde, to learn how to organize and hold a BioBlitz! It’s a great way to enable educators, conservation commissions, community leaders, naturalists, and outdoor enthusiasts to promote an appreciation for biodiversity, and to engage the members of their communities in citizen science. A BioBlitz is a way of documenting the biodiversity of a property by recording all of the species of plants, animals, fungi, and other organisms within a designated location and time period (usually 24 hours). Participants will learn how to use the free mobile app iNaturalist as the platform for collecting images and data. iNaturalist makes it easy for anyone to participate in a BioBlitz by recording observations using a smartphone or tablet. And you don't need to be able to identify the plant or animal you find. If you can find a plant or wild critter and take a picture of it you can participate as a BioBlitz observer!
