Interested in getting your students outside more? Want to prove that science is alive all around them? Join or start a bioblitz—an event that focuses on finding and identifying as many species as possible in a specific area over a short period of time. At a bioblitz, scientists, families, students, teachers, and other community members work together to get an overall count of the plants, animals, fungi, and other organisms that live in a place.
Join Julie Brown at National Geographic for an overview of how to run a schoolyard bioblitz and get involved with larger events happening all around the country. Julie will share resources and tips to help you and your students before, during, and after a bioblitz.
