Bring your smart phone and report your own findings/pictures at Longwood BioBlitz iNaturalist projecthttps://www.inaturalist.org/projects/longwood-bioblitz
The Environmental Educational Center at Lancer Park will be "BioBlitz central." You will be able to find and learn about local wildlife, help collect data on local biodiversity, and participate in several other activities such as a scavenger hunt, and bird watching. At “touch tables”, you can get close encounters with local animals and plants, and materials for teachers will be available. In addition, there will be a large floor map of Virginia that children can explore by walking and use of manipulatives.
All events are free and open to anyone interested in exploring outdoors. Bring your family, friends and neighbors!
