ANSWER THE CALL
Uncover Nature’s Mysteries
The University Center Gaylord answers the call from the National Geographic Society and The National Parks Service for every state to run a BioBlitz in 2017, in celebration of the National Parks Service.
In Support of this celebration, the University Center Gaylord will be hosting their third annual BioBlitz in partnership with Michigan Geography Alliance, Central Michigan University, Michigan Department of Environmental Quality, Northeast Michigan Great Lakes Stewardship Initiative, Michigan State University Extension, Michigan Department of Natural Resources, Otsego County Historical Society, Huron Pines and Line-45.
WHAT IS A BIOBLITZ?
A BioBlitz is part festival, part educational and part scientific event in which teams of volunteer scientists, families, students, teachers, and community members of all ages work together to find and identify as many species of plants, animals, microbes, fungi, and other organisms as possible.
