Our Winter BioBlitz is back and it starts TODAY! This friendly competition is the entire month of December and involves all NDOW staff, volunteers, interns and seasonals, also Nevada teachers. The goal is to observe as much wildlife, plants, insects, tracks, etc. anywhere in Nevada through the smart phone app iNaturalist (Apple App store:  https://apps.apple.com/us/app/inaturalist/id421397028; Google Play store: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.inaturalist.android&hl=en_US&gl=US). And yes – there will be a prize for most observations! (Flyer is also attached and below.)

What is a BioBlitz?

A BioBlitz is a chunk of time where participants observe as much wildlife as possible – wildlife sightings, insects, plants, tracks… all of the above! This year, the BioBlitz includes the entire month of December and if you join the Project online – anything you observe in Nevada will count! Join the Project here: https://www.inaturalist.org/projects/ndow-winter-bioblitz-2021. (If you are new to iNaturalist, you will need to create an account before you join the BioBlitz project.) This is free to anyone and starts today - on December 1 and lasts until midnight on December 31!
