2022 dates coming soon

The Perry Farm Park BioBlitz is an event where community members work with park staff to create a snapshot of the variety of wildlife that can be found at Perry Farm. It is a collaborative race against the clock to discover as many species as possible within a set location during a defined period. This information will help us understand how we can better protect pollinators and other important wildlife in our community. BioBlitz will have biology experts on hand to discuss prairie ecosystem, give guided hikes and more. Download the offical app: iNaturalist to help scientists track the survey findings! 
In addition to the survey, we will also host children's activities and educational workshops at the event!
