This will be our 17th in the Kingston area! We would like to record over 600 species in 24 hours and hope that everyone, including our volunteers, will find it a fun and educational event.
The idea for the BioBlitz comes from the Canadian Biodiversity Institute. It’s an inventory of as many living things as can be identified within a 24 hour period. Specialists and experts from a diverse set of disciplines will be grouped with interested volunteers to explore the area under investigation. The inventory and interaction of volunteers with the public are integral goals of this event.
The BioBlitz takes place from 3:00 pm on Friday, 12 June to 3:00 pm on Saturday, 13 June, 2015. The event will run, rain or shine.
We are delighted for the opportunity to hold this BioBlitz at Wintergreen Studios at 9780 Canoe Lake Road (north of Sydenham). This is a 204 acre property and has a variety of habitats including forest, cliff, ponds/lake, stream, cranberry/tamarack bog, fields and a butterfly garden. Allow about one hour from Kingston to the site. See map. Car pooling is suggested.
