Bioblitz at Barr Lake!
April 27, 2019 @ 7:00 am - 2:00 pm UTC+0
Want to learn about Earth Day and nature, live and in-person, from experts in many fields? Come to the Barr Lake State Park’s 2019 BioBlitz!
What is a BioBlitz? It’s an event that brings together natural resource experts, community volunteers, and members of the public to inventory all species (plants, mammals, birds, insects, fungi, etc.) in a specific area over a specific time period. Not only do you help with surveying our local resources, you’re working with experts who can answer your questions and enhance your understanding of our beautiful natural world. There might even be a BioBlitz dance!
