Bioblitz in the Gardens
May 13, 2019 - May 17, 2019
Do you love plants? Birds? Bees? Butterflies? Living things in general? We need your help!
We are celebrating National Public Gardens Week by partnering with Discover Life in America to host an exciting BioBlitz. You are invited to join us in a communal citizen-science effort to record as many species within the grounds of the Knoxville Botanical Garden and Arboretum as possible using the iNaturalist smartphone application.
9 a.m. – 3 p.m. Monday, May 13: Discover Life in America is kicking off the first day of the BioBlitz. DLIA will bring nets, jars, magnifying glasses, and help you identify your observations using the iNaturalist app
9 a.m. – 3 p.m. Tuesday, May 14 – Friday, May 17: Check in with Garden staff and volunteers in our Visitors Center for tools, resources, and help identifying your observations using the iNaturalist app
You don’t need to wait for the BioBlitz in the Gardens to start making observations. Download the iNaturalist app and visit us any time to help us catalogue the diversity of life across the Knoxville Botanical Garden and Arboretum. Questions?
