In partnership with the Guardians of the Prairie and Forest, we invite you to join us for the 2018 Nahant Marsh BioBlitz, to be held from 2 p.m. on June 22 to 2 p.m. on June 23.

A BioBlitz is a 24-hour period of intense biological sampling in an attempt to document all living things in a specified area. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to join scientists and naturalists from around the region as they survey mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish plants, insects and much more on our 305- acre forest preserve. This is an exciting opportunity for citizens to work alongside the experts to help us document our biodiversity. Bring your camera or use your smartphone to capture any and all of the species you encounter! The free app, iNaturalist, will be used to record findings for the 2018 Blitz.

Free guided night and day hikes and other hands-on public programs will be offered Friday from 7:30-9:30 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m.-2 p.m.

For questions, contact Lindsey: 563.336.3374.
