Brazos Valley BioBlitz 2016

BioBlitz is a 24-hr event during which biologists count as many species as they can in our local nature park. It serves as a unique opportunity for the community to get involved in the outdoors and learn more about the biodiversity in their area!

 

 

BioBlitz is a 24-hr event during which biologists count as many species as they can in our local nature park. Families with nature lovers, budding scientists, and experienced naturalists team up to perform a survey and create a report of all the diversity within the park. BioBlitz events involve science, education, and celebration to highlight the importance of urban green spaces to biodiversity. All ages are invited to attend. The Brazos Valley BioBlitz is held at Lick Creek Park in College Station, Texas every April. This year the event will take place on April 29th and 30th. Activities include: bat walks, plant walks, insect lighting, booths and displays, children activities, and lots more! The best thing about this event is it's free for everyone! Discovery activities begin Friday evening 6-9 pm, with booths open on Saturday 10 am-2 pm.

ALL KIDS MUST BE ATTENDED BY ADULTS. ALL DOGS MUST BE ON-LEASH!
