Naturalists to Count Plant & Animal Species at BioBlitz Jacqueline Bartnik

T

he Kingston Field Naturalists will hold their 21st annual BioBlitz to count plant, animal, and other species as a measure of the biodiversity of a local area in June. The event is open to the public and will be held with Ontario Power Generation at the Lennox Plant on Bath Road in Greater Napanee. Natural history specialists, amateurs, and

members of the public will identify and record as many plant and animal species as possible over a 24-hour period. The idea is to set a baseline of the biodiversity for the area. A BioBlitz is a communitybased initiative linking science, education, and public participation. It is a fun and free event. There will be guided walks to learn about a variety of organisms throughout the period. This event fulfills the mandate of the Kingston

Field Naturalists to stimulate public interest in nature and to acquire and provide knowledge of natural history. The BioBlitz program, including the times of the various guided walks, as well as more information, may be found on the Kingston Field Naturalists website at www. kingstonfieldnaturalists.org.
