In honor of the iNaturalist City Nature Challenge, we’re holding an Arboretum BioBlitz! A BioBlitz is like a natural scavenger hunt: we will try to observe as many species of plants, animals, and fungi as we can in three hours. And because we have over 2,000 species to find, we need your help! Just download the free iNaturalist app and come to the Arboretum to make observations. We’ll have information booths to help you get started with the app, and our staff will be on hand to help you identify the critters you spot on the trails.
We strongly recommend bringing a mask to wear if you want to chat with Arboretum staff and volunteers. Masks are required when entering the Nature Center building.
