Schedule of Events for the Vermont Atlas of Life BioBlitz at Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller NHP!

Part scientific endeavor, part festival, and part education, the BioBlitz at Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park will bring together leading scientists, naturalists, and community members of all ages to find and document as many species as possible in one day at the park as part of the Vermont Atlas of Life. Step outside with us and become part of a growing network of "citizen scientists". Curiosity required, no experience necessary! A BioBlitz is an intensive one-day study of biodiversity in a specific location, bringing scientists and volunteer citizen-scientists together. We’ll look for birds, mammals, reptiles, butterflies, insects, spiders, trees, flowers, mushrooms, and more!

People of all ages and skill levels are welcome! Bring your smart phone for sure. Bonus: camera, binoculars, magnifying glasses, butterfly nets, gardening gloves, and other goodies if you've got ‘em. We'll enter observations in iNaturalist and maintain eBird and e-Butterfly lists ...more ↓

Yesterday I had three new butterflies appear in the field. This gorgeous guy appeared when I was chasing a Black Swallowtail, and there was also a European Skipper around.

About

It started with a simple question. How many species occur in Vermont? You’d think we’d know this for a small state steeped in a rich tradition of naturalists dating back to Zadock Thompson and his seminal 1842 work on the natural history of Vermont. But, the simple answer was, no one really knew.

We do know how many species there are of some of the popular taxonomic groups like birds ...more ↓
