The Vibraslaps are a new commodity on the Knoxville scene, but hardly a new commodity. This unique cover band is a mix of rock veterans who originally came together for a special occasion and had such a good time that they wanted to keep it going. The band performs covers from the 60s through today, with an emphasis on the early days of MTV and 80s alternative hits.
First Annual Urban Wilderness Bioblitz: August 22, 2015- 10 am till 6 pm in Knoxville, TN
What is a Bioblitz?
A BioBlitz is a short (usually one-day), intense team effort to discover as many different life forms as possible in one location. Teams of volunteer scientists, families, students, teachers, and other community members work together to find and identify as many species of plants, animals, microbes, fungi, and other organisms as they can.
BioBlitzes are designed to increase the public's awareness of the variety of life in their immediate neighborhood and the services these various species provide to improve the quality of their lives. We usually hear the word "biodiversity" in regard to rainforests, with their vast number of species. Yet the diversity of life in our own backyards is phenomenal.
