What’s a BioBlitz?
The Center for Conservatation and Biodiversity, and the Connecticut State Museum of Natural History join together to host a program called the “BioBlitz”. Designed as part contest, part educational event, and part scientific endeavor, the BioBlitz bring scientists together from the University of Connecticut and other organizations across the state to see how many species that they can count in a 24 hour period in a Connecticut park.
BioBlitz “collectors” leave Goodwin College in East Hartford Saturday morning to go out and find more species of “Biodiversity”. The college was headquarters for this years BioBlitz.
Inside Goodwin College tables are set up showing many different types of species from around Connecticut and beyond.
This aquarium full of tadpoles was just one of scores of creatures that you can see, touch, and even smell if you wanted too.
