Southeast Alaska Bioblitz

A Bioblitz is a race against time to find and count as many species as possible in a given area in a 24-hour time period. Bioblitzes are a blend of science, celebration, education and community, where biologists, naturalists and ordinary citizens team up to discover beetles and bears, ferns and frogs, wasps and whales – any living thing they can find. The event is free and open to all.

When: Saturday- Sunday, June 18-19, 2011
Where: University of Alaska Southeast campus, Juneau

The 2nd Annual Southeast Alaska BioBlitz will be based at the University of Alaska Southeast campus and surveys will cover Auke Lake, Auke Creek, Auke Bay, and surrounding areas. A starting gun will launch the 24-hour event at 2 pm on Saturday. Join a survey team and learn hands-on how biologists survey and identify organisms from different taxonomic groups. Examine insects, lichens, fungi, or other species under a microscope or attend a workshop or presentation by local scientists and naturalists. There are lots of educational activities for the entire family throughout the weekend, as well as a free BBQ for all participants on Saturday afternoon.

This event is partnership between the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, Alaska Coastal Rainforest Center, City & Borough of Juneau, Springboard- A Program of the Juneau Economic Development Council, NOAA, University of Alaska Southeast, U.S. Forest Service and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
