Sunday, May 2

All-day

Celebrate biodiversity at BioBlitz!

During this family-friendly event, you will work with scientists, educators, and naturalists to document the biodiversity at Cumming Nature Center. Spend the day identifying, collecting, and recording as many species of plants and animals as possible throughout our 900-acre preserve.

Along the way, you will learn fascinating facts, develop your naturalist skills, and grow in gratitude for the diverse species that create the unique and vibrant ecosystem that we call home!

At BioBlitz you can:

  • Join a hike (or two! or three!) with an expert guide to collect field data and identify plant and animal species
  • Hone your observational skills by participating in hands-on activities and exploring citizen science opportunities
  • Engage with experts to ask your questions about the scientific process, biodiversity, and the natural world
  • Help us visualize the data we collect throughout the day with a collaborative art project

Kid-friendly activities will be available, so pack a picnic and plan to stay for the whole day!
