    Sunday, September 6, 2020

    Welcome to our summer nature series! We'll explore the fascinating research and science happening in parks. Each Sunday we have a different topic and activity you and your family can be a part of to help protect our local animals and plants. This Sunday we present:

    Let’s do a Bioblitz! What is that, you ask? A Bioblitz is a way of recording as many living things that you can find! Using the free smartphone app, i-naturalist, we'll let you loose int the park to see who can find the most living things possible! Please bring your smartphone to join in the research.
