You’re Invited to Participate in ‘Global Bioblitz’ to Record Observations of Nature, April 29 to May 2
The Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk is encouraging residents of Fairfield and Westchester counties to make and share simple observations of plants and animals April 29-May 2 as part of a global bioblitz called City Nature Challenge. — an announcement from The Maritime Aquarium
The Aquarium is organizing Fairfield and Westchester counties’ “team” in this four-day international event, which pits metro areas in a contest to make the most observations of nature, to find the most species and to engage the most people. “We’d love for as many families and individuals in the two counties to make as many observations as they can, even if it’s just for a brief time on one of the four days,” said Bridget Cervero, senior education manager. “Making observations for City Nature Challenge is more than a fun excuse to get out and learn about the animals and plants in your community,” Cervero said. “The data gives scientists an annual invaluable moment-in-time snapshot of our local and global species.”
Anyone can participate anywhere.
