Bioblitzes are day long events that bring students, community members and scientists together to explore and document the plants and animals that live in our parks. Visitors can actively participate in nature walks and talks and hands-on crafts and activities while they learn from representatives from ecology and conservation groups. Organizations involved in the event include the National Parks and Conservation Association, Virginia Commonwealth University, Virginia Master Naturalists, Cockade City Camera Club and Thunder Eagle Wildlife Rehabilitators. Includes a photo contest.
