Join area scientists and naturalists at the Adirondack Interpretive Center in Newcomb, NY on June 29th for the 2014 Bioblitz. This large event will feature educational programing and semi-guided forays into the area’s forests, bogs, and lakes for a fun day of nature exploration. The goals of the Bioblitz (hosted by the Adirondack All-Taxa Biodiversity Inventory of Paul Smith’s College and SUNY ESF) will be to find and identify as many species of organisms as possible in one day! The focus of the 2014 Bioblitz will be to learn about “Biotic Interaction”, i.e. interactions between organisms. Bee expert Sam Droege and his colleagues will be hosting a workshop on bee identification and ecology. We will also be demonstrating scientific methods of bee collection and preservation as part of a scientific study of bee diversity in the Adirondack Park.
This event is open to the general public and families are welcome. You don’t need to be an expert naturalist, you just need to be willing to learn and have fun. Registration is free and starts at 8:30 AM. Workshops, demonstrations, and field trips are planned for 9:30 AM and 1:15 PM.
