Wanted: Citizen Scientists for BioBlitz

Volunteers needed at Red Canyon Ranch on June 21 and 22


Lander, WY | June 02, 2014

If you are interested in connecting with nature and helping science, register for The Nature Conservancy’s Red Canyon Ranch Bioblitz scheduled on June 21 and 22. This is the first time the ranch has hosted a bioblitz, which is an all out effort by community members (of all ages), teachers, and scientists to determine how many plants and animals live on the property, located 12 miles south of Lander. The goal is to get a good baseline of what is out there to determine the best conservation strategies, ensuring healthy and productive land and water. 

This is an interactive, hands-on project that involves banding birds, chasing butterflies, trapping and counting small mammals, listening for bats and a whole lot of fun! Volunteers have the option of camping out. 

This is a collaborative effort with Audubon Rockies, which has managed dozens of biological surveys across the state 

There is limited space and registration is required by June 7, 2014

To register, visit wyomingbiodiversity.org/bioblitz
