Help Us Document Biodiversity!
The lands and waters of the Cootes to Escarpment EcoPark System are a Canadian biodiversity hotspot. We need your help to inventory what lives here. Join an enthusiastic team of EcoPark System partners, friends and the public for our second annual BioBlitz to document the biodiversity in the area. Become a citizen scientist and learn from our experts as we blitz these properties around the clock!
Our BioBlitz is divided into two components: The Expert Blitz, and the Guided Blitz.
1. Science-Intense, Expert Only Blitz
Starting bright and early and extending all day on Friday, June 22nd, experts will be blitzing the Cootes to Escarpment EcoPark Properties in an attempt to identify as much variety of living things as possible. Food will be provided throughout the day. Registration is required to participate.
2. Public, Guided Blitz
Join an expert on a guided blitz during the night of Friday, June 22nd and the morning of Saturday, June 23rd, as together you explore and discover all kinds of wild things. Maybe you will discover something we never knew was here before! See guided hike schedule below for details. Registration is required to participate.
