Several other grad students and I will be volunteering at D-Town Farm on *Saturday, May 6th *to conduct a Bio-Blitz! We will be working with the Detroit Black Community Food Security Network, an awesome non-profit, to engage the youth of Detroit and D-Town Farm to explore the biodiversity of the farm.
A BioBlitz is a rapid biodiversity assessment that combines taxonomic inventory, public outreach and science education. This year we expect the participation of 80+ youth and we need your help! We need people who can identify birds really well, along with insects, amphibians, plants, and more.
