Bioblitz this spring in Haliburton County...

Greeting everyone!

I wish you all a wonderful New Year, with piles of awesome, rare species for your 2017 life lists! 

This year, I am organizing a bioblitz on behalf of the Haliburton Highlands Land Trust. I am reaching out to all of you for assistance in making this the most successful event possible. Although still in the planning stages, here are a few details:

Where: Dahl Forest. A beautiful 400 acre property that straddles the pristine Burnt River, S of Gelert, ON in Haliburton County. Some of you might recognize the site as it is where Common Sanddragon was first discovered in Haliburton County.

When: Saturday, June 24th to Sunday, June 25th

Time: 11:00am to 11:00am.

There will be an area set aside for camping, for those that would prefer to do that. Feel free to come for a few hours or for the entire 24hour period. I would love to collect data on as many taxa as possible, but this will obviously depend on the expertise available. I am hoping to have some short guided hikes for the general public throughout the day, focused on different groups of plants or animals.

Please feel free to contact me and let me know if you might be interested in participating, and what taxa you could assist with. Also, please feel free to share this with friends/acquaintances that might also be keen to assist.

I look forward to hearing from you.
