BioBlitz Event Coming to Parvin State Park Saturday

PITTSGROVE TWP. — Join Citizens United to Protect the Maurice River & Its Tributaries, South Jersey Land & Water Trust, the AmeriCorps Watershed Ambassadors, and Parvin State Park staff for a BioBlitz.
The community science effort is scheduled for 9 a.m.-noon May 27 at Parvin State Park. Volunteers will be asked to help find and identify as many species as possible within a designated location. It’s a biological inventory of the organisms living in a certain place which generates useful data for science and conservation.
Participants will be divided into groups and head off in different directions within Parvin State Park to survey biotic groups: plants, fungi, insects, aquatic macroinvertebrates, birds, mammals, and reptiles and amphibians.
Prior to the BioBlitz, CU recommends downloading the iNaturalist or Seek app to identify organisms while in the field.
