“BioBlitz”—Surveying the Life of Vineyard Field: All Ages
*The museum will be closed for this program from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m.
Program Leader: Rachel Speckenback, South Fork Natural History Museum (SOFO) Environmental Educator
A BioBlitz is an in-depth survey of all living things in an area over a period of time—usually 24 hours. For the sake of time and resources, SOFO will be conducting a sample BioBlitz in a given area of Vineyard Field, the field behind the museum, over a 3-hour timespan. Join program leader SOFO environmental educator Rachel Speckenbach and other SOFO educators to learn about plant and animal species identification and help us discover what’s living behind the museum! We will try to record as many plants, animals, and fungi as possible. This program provides a great opportunity for families to learn about the biodiversity of the South Fork. Please bring water and dress appropriately for working outdoors
