About the Event
Come learn how on Monday, May 2nd at 5:30 at Osborne Park when we will pair technology and ecology using the iNaturalist app.
A Bioblitz is period of intense biological sampling designed to document as many living things as possible in a specified area. Don’t miss this opportunity to join a naturalist as we survey mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish, plants, insects and more at Osborne Park. Learn how to use the free app, iNaturalist, as we record all our findings for the 2022 Bioblitz. The Bioblitz will last all week, so after learning how, you will be able to add more findings to the project on your own throughout the week at any natural area of your choice..
Download iNaturalist ahead of time if you know how and bring your phone or electronic device to join us. Please register for the event at 245-1516. The Osborne Center is located on Highway 13, five miles south of Elkader.
