CBR4 Bioblitz Saturday September 25

The Christina Conservancy is teaming up with the Delaware Nature Society and others to host a Bioblitz on Saturday, Sept. 25 from 1 to 5 p.m. at the DuPont Environmental Education Center in Wilmington. It is being held as part of the Monarch Migration Celebration, an afternoon of culture and nature, and will help inform the lower Christina and Brandywine Rivers Remediation, Restoration and Resilience (CBR4) plan.

An important part of the CBR4 project is understanding what plants and animals call the area home, tracking their populations and identifying where in the project area they can be found. One way to do this is by hosting a Bioblitz – a fun walk led by a professional naturalist to identify any or all of the mammals, birds, amphibians, reptiles, insects, wildflowers, trees and shrubs in a publicly owned property.

On September 25th there will be multiple walks at different times and participants can learn how to use iNaturalist to collect and report data on plants and animals. iNaturalist is a free app that can be downloaded to your smartphone. Users can upload an image of any animal or plant they see at any time, with its location for others to view and help identify. Download the App today and submit your sightings. (Learn More)
