To kick off Campus Sustainability Month, Marquette Sustainability and Biological Sciences will co-host a week-long BioBlitz on campus from Tuesday, Sept. 26, until noon on Tuesday, Oct. 3.
A BioBlitz is an event that focuses on finding and identifying as many species as possible in a specific area over a period of time. Participants who make over 10 observations will be entered into a drawing to win a gift card from a local business or organization.
BioBlitz Kickoff: Tuesday, Sept. 26, from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. under the Raynor Memorial Bridge
- Participants will learn more about the BioBlitz, how to use the different species guide and how to log their findings in iNaturalist app.
BioBlitz Wrap-Up: Tuesday, Oct. 3, from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. under the Raynor Memorial Bridge
- This event will highlight the species found and those with the most observations, as well as give participants an opportunity to share what the experience was like for them. Raffle winners will also be announced.
If you cannot make the kickoff event, you can still participate throughout the week.
