What’s a bioblitz? Think of it like Pokemon Go, but with real species! Citizen scientists will work side-by-side with scientists and naturalists to find and record as many plants, animals, insects, and other organisms as possible. Blitz the Bear celebrates the NPS centennial and launches Great Lakes Bioblitz, a series of bioblitzes that give everyday citizens the thrill of discovery, while generating high-quality data to support scientific progress in the Great Lakes region. We’re recruiting citizen scientists, photographers, data managers and logistics volunteers. See website to sign up!
