Come count with us! In celebration of the 100th anniversary of the founding of the U.S. National Park Service, the tenth in a series of annual BioBlitzes hosted by the service and the National Geographic Society will be held in parks in the Washington, D.C. area. A bioblitz is a quest to discover living organisms. During these rapid biological surveys, scientists and volunteers of all ages and backgrounds work together to compile a "snapshot" of biodiversity in (usually) less than 48 hours. Biodiversity refers to the variety of life on our planet, including all living creatures, their habitats, natural processes, and the connections between these things. Registration will open soon.
