BioBlitz 2013 Exhibitor Information
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!

Did You Know?
Lubber grasshoppers are sometimes known as devil's horses in south Louisiana. They lay their eggs in the fall and prefer loose dirt, so they often lay their eggs in cemeteries. These enormous flightless grasshoppers hatch in spring and spend the summer munching their way through vegetation.
