Rules & Guidelines

-Count number of species (each species can only be counted once per transect... northern and southern sides of the lake)
-All species count (plants, animals, fungi, and insects)
-Wanted dead or alive (any dead species may also be recorded)
-Identify by sight or sound (if a participant can identify a species by song or call, it is acceptable to record those species)
-Time period (all species must be seen or heard on Friday, May 22 from 11 am - 3 pm)
-Photos not required (though it is a good idea to take pictures during the event, it is not required to prove sighting of a species... however, photos may be very useful in your own identification of species using online resources)
