SCOTTSBLUFF, Neb. — The Bird Conservancy of the Rockies and Nebraska Game and Parks Commission are inviting the public to survey the natural resources of the region during the Virtual Panhandle BioBlitz May 1-2.
A bioblitz is an inventory of species, such as plants, mammals, birds, insects and fungi, in a specific area during a specific period.
The free event will begin with a welcome segment May 1 at 9 a.m. MDT. Participants will then be encouraged to explore the biodiversity of their backyard, neighborhood or public lands within the Panhandle. At 3 p.m. MDT, participants will return for a virtual check-in with natural resources experts.
The first 75 registrants will receive an exploration kit with field guides, investigation tools, activity sheets and more. The items will be available April 24-30 at sites throughout the Panhandle during certain dates and times. To register, visit https://zoom.us/meeting/register/tJAlf-yurT0pG9W64A-OyHxtOaSizEiyEFMZ
