Join us for the 10th Annual Berkshire Bioblitz a 24 hour biological survey.
FREE & Open to all – bring the kids!
Join a scientist out in the field to see what we can find on this incredible 237.5 acre preserve. What moths, butterflies, and ants can we find? How about mushrooms? How many different types of ferns live here? Come on out to explore, discover, and wonder!
Biologists of all stripes will take to the woods, wetlands and fields to find and tally species from as many taxa as possible, including algae, ferns, trees, fungi, arthropods, mollusks, fish, birds, reptiles and more.
Teams of surveyors, each led by an expert in the field, will go out throughout the 24-hour period to look for specific groups of organisms.
There will also be educational programs throughout the two days. Contact [email protected] or [email protected] for more information or if you’d like to take part in this year’s Bioblitz.
Stand by for a schedule of events and other details to follow soon.
