BioBlitz RULZ! :)

Here are the general "rules" for the bioblitz:

  1. Observations must be made between September 6 - 12.

    So, one second after midnight on Sept 6 to one second before midnight on Sep 12... Sunday - Saturday. 7 days of bioblitzing!
  2. Observations must be made within these DFW counties:

    Wise, Denton, Cooke, Collin, Hunt, Dallas, Rockwall, Kaufman, Tarrant, Parker, Hood, Johnson, Somervell, Ellis, and Navarro. Where you make the observation will determine which project it's added to. Although, ALL observations are added to this umbrella project, so they all count.
  3. Observations must be of wild (not cultivated or captive) organisms.

    So, no captive pets or cultivated plants will count. It's ok to observe these, but recognize that the project won't catch them.
  4. Observations need to have a photo or sound.

    Without these, the observation just stays casual grade. We'd like to see some sort of evidence of your observation.
  5. Observations need to be uploaded before the 18th.

    Try your best to get the uploaded sooner! The sooner you get your uploaded, the more likely they'll be ID'ed for the results given on the 18th.
  6. ID as many of the observations as you can!

    Start with ID'ing your own observations, and then, please, help out others with their observations. You learn a lot in the process!
  7. No need to join any project or be a master naturalist or anything like that.

    Observations that meet the above categories will automatically be added to these projects. :) I really hope that Master Naturalists will curate a lot of the observations made by all though.
  8. Respect points for the daily challenges!

    Each day, there will be a daily challenge of something to observe. Try to get these -- Sam will respect you. :)
  9. Tell others about this!

    The more engagement, the more folks involved, the more folks engaging with nature. That's a big deal. Also, at the end of this, Sam will write up a detailed report of the relevancy of this sort of event as the results are announced on Sep 18th.
  10. You MUST have FUN.

    Required. Demanded. Spend time engaging with nature during this time!
