The first ever BioBlitz on a UConn Campus!

We are excited to announce that we are organizing the first ever BioBlitz on a UConn campus. There is such great biodiversity right here, why go anywhere else?  We are planning to make this an engaging event for researchers and the public alike.

We are pleased to announce Joshua’s Trust, The Center for Conservation and Biodiversity, and the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology as our sponsors for the event! Their generosity and community mindedness is a great addition to the event. Read more about them and find links to their websites here.

Along with the classic workshops and nature walks we are trying something new with this Bioblitz. We are holding a Science Exposé.  Making use of the Hillside Environmental Education Park (HEEP), we hope to lead hypothesis driven research and anyone can join in.

So many great events will be happening, bookmark this website and check back often as we will be updating regularly.
