DLIA has partnered with TVA and regional scientists to engage people in a biological inventory of TVA’s public lands through BioBlitzes. Family friendly, no experience necessary, and free admission!
These events incorporate field collection, specimen identification and education sessions. They offer an opportunity to get to know the biodiversity in our backyard and help the TVA to better manage natural areas through species occurrence data. Participants will survey birds, butterflies and plants using nets and provided collection and preservation equipment. Experts will be on hand to train participants and identify species. We ask that participants make sure they’ve downloaded the iNaturalist application on their phones or smart devices. This app is an important part of our activity, as it will be used to document species, information, and locations.
BioBlitzes are family friendly and offer opportunities for the public to have hands-on experiences and interactions with scientists, wildlife and the community at large. Anyone interested in Wildlife, Biology, Citizen Science, Biodiversity and getting outside are encouraged to participate.
For this Bioblitz we will be working in Muscle Shoals, Alabama. Please register to join us in Muscle Shoals below- we look forward to surveying with you!
