We know you are all cooped up and looking for things to do. Unfortunately, as you may have guessed, we have to postpone actual Bioblitz event until the fall. We will be posting the new dates soon. However, to keep you all sane and provide an Outdoor Classroom solution to parents we are converting this year's Bioblitz into a VIRTUAL one.

What is a VIRTUAL Bioblitz?
Using the free iNaturalist app you are able to visit our 4 participating parks individually or in groups of less than 10.  While visiting the parks, take pictures of what you see, plants, insects, trees, fungi, birds, etc. using the iNaturalist app and when you upload your observations it will add them to our Bioblitz project. 
Check out the project here: https://www.inaturalist.org/projects/brec-2020-virtual-bioblitz

We will be posting video tutorials for how to use that app and take great pictures at brec.org/bioblitz in case you are unfamiliar with how to use it.

This event will run from APRIL 1st, 2020 through MAY 31, 2020.

Participating Parks:
Zachary Community Park
Manchac Parish Park
Blackwater Conservation Area
Kendalwood Road Park (primitive, recommended for older children and adults)

We ask that you follow all CDC guidelines while visiting the parks and not attend in groups larger than 10.  This is meant to be a project for individuals, families and very small groups.  Keep in mind restrooms if the park has them will be open but all BREC facilities are closed. 
Email us at conservation@brec.org if you have questions.
