BioBlitz is a 24-hr event during which biologists count as many species as we can in our local nature park. Families with nature lovers, budding scientists, and experienced naturalists team up to perform a survey and create a report of all the diversity within the park. BioBlitz events involve science, education, and celebration to highlight the importance of urban green spaces to biodiversity. The Brazos Valley BioBlitz is held at Lick Creek Park in College Station, Texas every April. Events include: bird walks, herp walks, mammal walks, plant walks, insect lighting, booths and displays, childrens activities, and lots more.
The Biodiversity Assessment and Monitoring Lab runs the mammal team each year; we help to survey the park for mammals and also run the mammal education booth. Check out our team’s appearance at minute 4:20 in the video.
