BioBlitz 2018!

Join us as we explore the vast biodiversity of Hyatt Hidden Lakes Reserve during our 2018 BioBlitz, Saturday, October 13. With habitats ranging from dry uplands to wetlands and open water, Hyatt is home to a wide range of species year-round.

Participants will work alongside local experts and environmental educators to document the plants, insects, birds and other organisms that call this unique park home. Through a combination of traditional paper data sheets and digital citizen science tools, you can help create a lasting record of the plants and animals that reside in Hyatt Hidden Lakes Reserve.

This is a great opportunity to reconnect with nature, meet new people and contribute to science. All activity will involve walking on unpaved trails and being in the great outdoors. We hope to see you there!
