Bring your sense of wonder to a 24-hour BioBlitz at Point Defiance Park

BioBlitz at Point Defiance Park
April 27-28, 2018
Friday at 2:00 pm through Saturday at 2:00 pm

Ever wondered just how many living organisms call Point Defiance Park home? Then you're invited to help us find out! A sense of wonder is all you'll need to volunteer at the park's BioBlitz, a survey of all living things in the park that runs 2 pm April 27 through 2 pm April 28.

Volunteers sign up for a four-hour shift during the 24-hour survey, joining small teams guided by expert scientists or naturalists and focusing on certain lifeforms, such as trees or insects.

No experience is necessary - just curiosity. (Must be at least 8 years old. Those under 18 must have an adult with them, except SAMi students.)
