2:00pm – 2:00pm

In partnership with the Guardians of the Prairie and Forest, we invite you to join us for the 2018 Nahant Marsh BioBlitz, to be held from 2 p.m. on June 22 to 2 p.m. on June 23.

A BioBlitz is a 24-hour period of intense biological sampling in an attempt to document all living things in a specified area. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to join scientists and naturalists from around the region as they survey mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish plants, insects and much more on our 305- acre forest preserve. This is an exciting chance for citizens to work alongside the experts. The public and media are invited to attend the BioBlitz to watch or assist the scientists in collection or documentation. The free app, iNaturalist, will be used to record all findings for the 2018 Blitz. 

Additionally, free guided night and day hikes and other hands-on programs will be offered Friday evening and Saturday morning. 

If you would like to volunteer, complete the registration below.
