DRIFTLESS 2021 BIOBLITZ
Record plants and wildlife in your backyard or anywhere in the Driftless Area for this community science and fun event.
Monday, March 1, 2021–Saturday, April 30, 2022
What Is Driftless Area BioBlitz?
Driftless Area BioBlitz is a free, one-of-a-kind, opportunity for families, students, and all naturelovers to search for and learn about plants and wildlife in the Driftless Area. For this year we will continue following COVID guidelines.
From March 1st this year through April 30, 2022 this year, people can participate by submitting observations of wild organisms from anywhere in the Driftless Area using iNaturalist. The Driftless Area includes areas in Wisconsin and parts of Minnesota, Illinois, and Iowa that is free from glacial drift and seems not to have been covered by the Pleistocene ice.
Why Participate in Driftless Area BioBlitz?
If you’re reading this, you probably already know how fun and exciting it is to notice new or uncommon species around you. Driftless Area BioBlitz feeds that sense of curiosity and discovery by encouraging people to observe everything around them, from the robin to the millipedes to the fungi and swamp oak. By dedicating some time to looking for new species, you’re also likely to learn about the incredible biodiversity in the Driftless Area (and even in your backyard!) you didn’t even know about.
Driftless Area BioBlitz is also a great opportunity for families to spend time together doing something out of the ordinary. No level of expertise is needed, which means family members of all ages can enjoy a weekend of exploring nature and the biodiversity in it.
Finally, participating in Driftless Area BioBlitz contributes scientific data that are useful to scientists and conservationists working to study and protect our wonderful plants and wildlife.
