BioBlitz: Citizen Science Opportunity
August 24, 2022
6:30 PM - 8:00 PM
5639 Oak Cliff Drive, El Paso, TX, 79912
Join us at Thunder Canyon for a BioBlitz where you will have an opportunity to participate in citizen science!
What is BioBlitz? BioBlitz is an event that focuses on finding and identifying as many species (flora and fauna) as possible in a specific area over a short period of time. Families, students, teachers, naturalists, scientists, and other members of the community work together to get a picture of an area’s biodiversity. Essentially like City Nature Challenge.
Apps such as iNaturalist make collecting photographs and biological information about living things easy as part of a BioBlitz. High quality data uploaded to iNaturalist become part of an open source database that is used by scientists around the world.
We will try to identify as many species as possible using field guides and with the help of iNaturalist. All ages are welcome, no experience required!
