BioBlitz 2016 Introduction

A BioBlitz is an event that focuses on finding and identifying as many species as possible in a specific area over a short period of time. At a BioBlitz, scientists, families, students, teachers, and other community members work together to get an overall count of the plants, animals, fungi, and other organisms that live in a place. In 2016, to celebrate the centennial, the BioBlitz initiative goes national! The cornerstone BioBlitz in the Washington, D.C. region will take place May 20-21, with over 200 BioBlitzes happening across the country and throughout the year.
