Come One, Come All! Mt. Washington Community Development Corporation and the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy are teaming up on Friday and Saturday June 6-7 for a BioBlitz in Pittsburgh’s newest regional park: Emerald View.
What? A BioBlitz is a 24-hour event where teams of volunteer scientists, nature observers, families and community members find and identify as many species of plants, animals, insects, fungi and organisms as possible.
Where? Located on Mount Washington, Emerald View Park forms a ring of trails through some of the City’s most scenic green space. BioBlitz headquarters are at Olympia Park’s entrance, Virginia Ave. & Hallock Street, Pittsburgh, PA 15211. Click here for a map of the entire park.
When? Friday Owl Calling Hike, 6-9pm. Saturday Bird Count, 6-10 am. Saturday BioBlitz Main Event, including plant & animal inventory, nature games, crafts, hikes, 10am-2pm. Click here for more information.
Help Wanted! All hands on deck! Sign up online here, or call Kathryn Hunninen at 412-481-3220 x200, or email her at email@example.com
I’ll be “BioBlitz birding” on Saturday morning.
Hope to see you there!
