SEQUOIA AND KINGS CANYON NATIONAL PARKS, CA – Are you interested in reptiles, amphibians, mammals, birds, insects, or plants? If so, you are invited to join the Centennial BioBlitz, which will be held at Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks, on Saturday, May 21, from 9 a.m.-9 p.m.! A BioBlitz is a treasure hunt to discover living things—where you (ages 5 to adult)--can be a citizen scientist and work side-by-side with park rangers, scientists, and other staff—to get up close and personal with nature. Participants will search for, observe, photograph, capture/release, identify, and/or record diverse critters and plants found in the parks. Each BioBlitz is open to a limited number of participants and varies in meeting time and location, hike difficulty, subject matter, and equipment. This event highlights the role of national parks in preserving the variety of life in the world, as indicators of the health of the world's ecosystems, and as living laboratories for scientific investigations that continue to advance our understanding of the natural word. Space is limited, so reserve your spot now!--www.exploresequoiakingscanyon.com/centennial-blitz.html.
