Wyoming State Parks to Host First-In-Park BioBlitz July 15-17

(Lander, WY) – From birds and bees to stamens and pistils, BioBlitz in the Park is for families and outdoor enthusiasts to get closer to the diversity of Wyoming’s biodiversity. Help us collect information about plants, fungi, and animals over the weekend of July 15-17. The information collected during the BioBlitz will help scientists better understand how your national park or historic site acts as vital habitat for a variety of species.

The BioBlitz is an opportunity for the public to team up with park staff to research and document as many plants and animals as possible while submitting their findings on the iNaturalist app. Participants of all ages and interests are welcome. No experience required, just a willingness to learn and have fun. All ages are welcome. Dress appropriately to be active outdoors and bring plenty of water and a snack. Note: No plants or animals will be harmed, just photographed.

Participating sites include Bear River State Park, Buffalo Bill State Park, Curt Gowdy State Park, Keyhole State Park, Seminoe State Park, Sinks Canyon State Park, and Medicine Lodge. For more information on Bioblitz in the Park, please visit the Facebook page for your national park or historic site.
