About the Event

A worldwide online event for everyone! As we practice social distancing to thwart the Covid-19 pandemic, there is no better time to explore your local flora and fauna.

On July 5th, join us for the third Socially Distant Bioblitz in our series of self-paced days of natural exploration that adhere to the World Health Organization's guidelines for social distancing.

What is a "bioblitz"? A bioblitz is a way of documenting the biodiversity of a property, town, or region by recording all of the species of plants, animals, fungi, and other organisms within a designated time period and location. It could be a meal moth in your pantry, the amphibians calling from afar, the spiders in your house, the plants in the pavement, the doves flying by your apartment porch...any living organism you see or hear! Participants can contribute observations from home, or wherever you find yourself in the world on the day of each event!

Register for the event and you'll receive an email with detailed instructions on how to join the project on iNaturalist.

This event is sponsored by Antioch University New England and Distant Hill Gardens and Nature Trail.
