Carp Hills – South March Highlands Bio-blitz

May 28, 2011

Carp Agricultural Hall,
3790 Carp Road,
Carp,  Ontario

The bio-blitz challenges experts from a number of fields to identify as many species as possible within a 24-hour period. Learn more about the challenging area the specialists will study. The resulting inventory of species will be published in a report summarizing the bio-blitz activities and describing the areas surveyed. All rare and endangered species observations will also be recorded in the Natural Heritage Information Center database.  The blitz will also include a geological component and, weather permitting, a Sky Quality Measurement Project.
