24-hour Hunt for Species: Let’s join together while still being apart, to count as many species as we can in the Cayuga Lake basin! From Saturday April 25, 2020, at 10 am to Sunday, April 26, at 10 am, the Cayuga Nature Center is sponsoring a Social Distance BioBlitz in honor of the 50th Earth Day.
Join us from wherever you are social distancing and contribute to our understanding of seasonal change in the biosphere of Tompkins & surrounding counties. We are calling all nature observers to photograph plants and animals in your neighborhood using the iNaturalist app (available for your smartphone–visit your favorite app store).
iNaturalist is a crowd-sourced online application, so if you don’t know what your species is, no worries, someone else will! With your help we hope to get a snapshot of the seasonal variation from our surrounding hilltops down to the shores of Cayuga Lake. All ages, all experience, all locations are welcome – please join us!
