2018 Bioblitz!
This will be the Kingston Field Naturalists 20th BioBlitz in the Kingston area! We would like to record up to 1,000 species in 24 hours and hope that everyone, including our volunteers, will find it a fun and educational event. This BioBlitz follows Blitzes in this location in 2000 and 2002 and will serve to show changes that have occurred in the past 16 years as well as add to the to the tally. The idea for the BioBlitz comes from the Canadian Biodiversity Institute. It’s an inventory of as many living things as can be identified within a 24 hour period. Specialists and experts from a diverse set of disciplines will be grouped with interested volunteers to explore the area under investigation. The inventory and interaction of volunteers with the public are integral goals of this event. The BioBlitz takes place from 3:00 pm on Friday, 15 June, to 3:00 pm on Saturday, 16 June, 2018. The event will run, rain or shine. The program, letter and poster are available below. For further information contact Anne (, 613 389 6742)
