Hosted by the Schoodic Institute, the goal of the BioBlitz is to collect, sort, and identify as many species of arthropods of a specific group as possible within a 24 hour period. It combines the collective efforts of experts, advanced amateurs, interested naturalists and beginners. All are welcome! The weekend event takes place in July and includes a free public program on Sunday. Find out more on our BioBlitz page.
