BioBlitz at River Point Conservation Area
Biologists at Biodiversity Research Institute in partnership with the Town of Falmouth Conservation Commission on Cape Cod, Mass. are hosting the first ever BioBlitz at River Point Conservation Area on June 29th and 30th. A BioBlitz is an organized effort to identify all the plants and animals on a particular site over a 24-hour period. Experts and volunteer naturalists will conduct mammal, reptile and amphibian surveys, plant and wildflower walks, butterfly and insect observations, and bird banding demonstrations. The goal is to gather information about the resident flora and fauna at River Point to help inform the property's management plan. BioBlitz is an educational event, acquainting us with the surrounding biodiversity we depend on. Festivities open to all take place Friday, June 29th, 8:30 pm to 10:00 pm and Saturday June 30th, 6:00 am to 4:00 pm.
