BioBlitz 2009 Friday, June 12th - Saturday, June 13th, 2009
5 p.m. to 5 p.m.
Crosby Farm Park

This year’s BioBlitz will take place in one of Minnesota’s five national parks—the Mississippi National River and Recreation Area. The event, coordinated by the University of Minnesota Bell Museum of Natural History, is free and open to the public.

Every year BioBlitz attracts hundreds of families and scientists from around the state who use sonar detectors, bug lights, live traps and laptops to count and chronicle an area’s floral and fauna. Volunteers of all ages work alongside biologists to collect plants and insects and live-trap animals, which are identified before being released back into the wild.
