Five Rivers BioBlitz, June 3-10
Help us celebrate Five Rivers’ biodiversity by taking part in a BioBlitz. Our goal is to take inventory of the species of plants, animals, and insects that live at Five Rivers. From June 3-10 you can participate by submitting your observations online via iNaturalist or by joining an organized BioBlitz event. Five Rivers will be hosting themed activities for all ages to enjoy throughout the week so the whole family can get involved.
Sunday, June 4, 10:00 a.m. - Seeking Animals and Their Sign – Animals leave signs of their presence everywhere – we just have to look for them! Come along on a walk to find animal tracks, scat, nests, and other signs of animal activity at Five Rivers. Meet at the Visitor Center at 10:00 am. The walk will last roughly two hours, but feel free to turn back at any time.
Please call 518-475-0291 to register. Everyone is welcome, regardless of knowledge or experience. You will be contacted in the event of a weather-related cancellation.
