BioBlitz! Family scavenger hunt at the Seacoast Science Center 9/21!

The Seacoast Science Center will hold its 14th annual BioBlitz!, a daylong species scavenger hunt of Odiorne Point State Park where the public explores alongside scientists and field naturalists to find and record data on as many different species in the Park as possible in one day.

BioBlitz! offers exciting opportunities for individuals and families to gain knowledge and skill in their favorite area of nature. Exploration teams will be birding, searching for insects, snakes and amphibians, exploring the freshwater pond and salt marsh, tracking mammals, identifying plants and seaweeds, tide pooling and more.

BioBlitz! is a great way to excite children about science and a rare opportunity to meet many passionate biologists working together. Odiorne’s 135 acres and seven distinctly different habitats make it a unique and fascinating place to explore and learn.
