See below for an interesting citizen science opportunity. Please contact Julia if you're interested in helping out with the bird survey (or surveying other critters and plants, for that matter.)
If this comes through to Wisbirdn in a garbled fashion (I tried to strip out anything extraneous that might mess it up,) you can contact me and I'll forward you the info directly.

The Milwaukee Public Museum is looking for volunteer birders to survey birds for its 2018 BioBlitz at Lake Farm County Park in Madison on June 22-23. A BioBlitz is a biodiversity survey where teams of surveyors attempt to count all the species they can find in a given area in 24 hours. The event kicks off at 3 pm on Friday, June 22nd and counting ends at 3 pm on Saturday, June 23rd, when the results are announced. On Saturday, the event is open to the public and there are educational activities. We are looking for whatever time you can volunteer- early birds and night owls are welcome for any length of time you can spend. Food and beverages (including great quantities of coffee) are provided for surveyors. Camping will be permitted for those staying overnight. Information about past BioBlitzes can be found at http://www.mpm.edu/BioBlitz .
If you're interested ( or have questions), please email Julia at <colby...><mailto:<colby...>.
