National Public Lands Day: BioBlitz in Everglades National Park

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: National Park Service

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.

Volunteers of any age and ability could come into the park and help us identify flora and fauna in the park by taking images of them and posting them on INaturlaist (or Ebird). This data then would help and be used by our park biologists for their data and research on our organisms in the park. Volunteers can do this while spending time in the park on our trails, on Ranger led tours, on boat tours, tram tours, etc. It’s an all-day event so we can have volunteers join at any time or spend as much time in the park as they’d like while volunteering with us. There will be a "check-in/check-out" table at the VC this way the volunteers can meet with me and any other supervisors to go over how to do the BioBlitz, what/where and how to find organisms and how to do so safely. This will be a place to come to for any issues or questions. Volunteers will meet up at this location when they are done to show their collected data.
