BioBlitz at the McLane Center Pollinator Habitat

June 25 @ 9:30 am - 2:30 pm EDT

Saturday, June 25th from 9:30am-2:30pm

Join us for a BioBlitz in the New Hampshire Audubon McLane Center pollinator habitat! We are looking to engage others to help us learn more about all that is living in our pollinator habitat. A BioBlitz is a community science effort where volunteers help find and record data on as many different species (plants, animals, insects, fungi) within a designated location and time period. We are excited to have a number of local experts who will join us to lead participants as we explore the biodiversity on this site.
