Science Communication Fellows Damara Strong and Janine Krippner to present at the Phipps Conservatory BioBlitz Festival

On Sun., June 5, our first-ever BioBlitz festival will bring together volunteer scientists, families, students, teachers and community members to conduct a biological survey of all of the living species in a given area. This important new form of citizen science aids the documentation of regional biodiversity and allows scientists to learn more about the environment and how we can support its conservation. By participating, you'll witness firsthand the amazing biodiversity right here in our local parks, participate in real-time science, create unique art, browse local vendors' products and goods, engage with interactive exhibits, enjoy live music and much more! This event is free to the public and no advance registration is required.
