Bog to Ridge BioBlitz VII
Saturday July 20th, 2019
The concept of a bioblitz started a couple decades ago…and for a noble but bittersweet reason; teams of biologists (ornithologists, mammalogists, botanists, lichenologists and so on) were sent to tracts of rainforest jungle that were on the verge of destruction; their mission was to record every living species and every bit of natural history they could before it was lost to humanity forever. The concept evolved in North America to become an educational event where the public can go in the field with a specialist in any one of many disciplines and record what they find and learn about it at the same time.
Friends of Sax-Zim Bog has made this an annual summer event. In 2017 we hosted over 40 folks who went in the field to learn about birds, orchids, butterflies, dragonflies, spiders, moths, wildflowers, fishes and bog ecology. Over 400 species were recorded on that single day in July!
