Bioblitz: an event that focuses on finding and identifying as many species as possible in a specific area over a period of time.
The Driftless Area BioBlitz is an opportunity for families, students, and all nature-lovers to discover and learn about plants and wildlife in the Driftless Area. No prior science knowledge required! All you need is a smartphone, the iNaturalist app, and a sense of wonder. Spend time with the whole family exploring nature, and discover the biological diversity in your own backyard. Your discoveries contribute to scientific data and help conservationists working to study and protect our planet. In the past, we’ve held city and Driftless-wide events, as well as events at schools in cooperation with our partners. We’ve had over 500 observations observed by 87 different people and over 300 different species have been identified.
