A BioBlitz is a 24-hour rapid survey of biological diversity, and to celebrate this biodiversity we host a public festival. On June 13th and 14th, local scientists, naturalists, and volunteers will comb Deer Flat National Wildlife Refuge to find and identify as many different species of plants and animals as possible. Everyone is welcome to attend and lend a helping hand as we all celebrate the biodiversity at Deer Flat. The Festival on Saturday is free and includes all kinds of fun activities for the family.
Golden Eagle Audubon Society will have a booth.
