Late-breaking news: exhibitor application deadline has been extended to Sunday, April 21!

BioBlitz 2013 will feature a two-day Biodiversity Festival that will include exhibitors, music, food, and fun. It all happens at Jean Lafitte's Barataria Preserve on Friday and Saturday, May 17 and 18. The National Park Service and National Geographic are looking for exhibitors that can help festival-goers learn about south Louisiana's biodiversity, discover why it is important, and find their own personal connections to it.

Festival-goers will be able to "earn a degree" at Biodiversity University by completing activities at participating exhibitors' booths. Festival-goers will range from students on Friday school field trips to families to people who are interested in nature and science, so Biodiversity University is expected to produce hundreds of graduates by the festival's end!
