Bio Blitz at The Community Forest June 17th & 18th –

Join us for the first ever BioBlitz at the new Yellow Dog River Community Forest on June 17th and 18th. A BioBlitz is a rapid survey of an area’s biological features conducted by citizen scientists and volunteers. The event will be a fun way for people to get outdoors and meet others who are interested in learning about our native ecosystems and its inhabitants. It is a chance to sharpen your outdoor skills while exploring parts of the Community Forest that are off the beaten path. We need volunteers to help conduct the survey, both experts and novices!

Volunteers will collect information about the various plant and animal species found in the Community Forest and YDWP will use the information to create a baseline database. Over time, the trends in the data can alert the community to any changes in the types and numbers of species present on the property. This data will help YDWP and the community be very informed stewards of the Forest. More…
