The School of Biology and Ecology Graduate Organization (SBE GO) invites members of the UMaine and local communities to take part in a BioBlitz — sometimes called biological censuses. These citizen-science events are held worldwide to record observed plants, animals, fungi and other organisms in a given area within a specific timeframe.
This two-day event takes place on Sept. 18–19, 8:30 a.m.–4:30 p.m.
Preregistration is encouraged on Eventbrite (eventbrite.com/e/umaine-bioblitz-tickets-166930709245). People also may register on campus during the event. After registering, participants will receive instructions, a lesson on using the iNaturalist smartphone app, and have a chance to ask questions and get help identifying specimens.
