Seacoast BioBlitz 2011Join scientists and naturalists to see how many species we can identify in one day during our 9th annual BioBlitz!

This is an extreme scavenger hunt where families in the community come together to collect data on all plant and animal species in the 135-acres of Odiorne Point State Park. It is a great opportunity for budding scientists of all ages. Last year, there were over 250 participants and over 40 volunteers who identified 716 species (83 were new species)

This is a great opportunity for the local community to explore the seven distinct habitats in the Park and discover how all facets of nature are interconnected. This event is not only an amazing way to learning about hundreds of plants and animals on the seacoast, but it is strongly aligned with the Seacoast Science Center’s mission to create connections to nature through personal experience. Identification sessions including birding, insects, freshwater pond, sal marsh, mammals, plants, tide pooling, and more!

ReVision Energy is a sponsor of this year’s BioBlitz.
