Meadow Restoration BioBlitz

April 27 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm

Meadow Restoration BioBlitz

Join a fun group on Saturday, April 27th from 8am – 12pm (or any portion of) for the first of three annual plant inventories of the Meadow Restoration Project. This event, also known as a BioBlitz, is a partner project with Wild Ones Southern Kentucky Chapter. We will inventory native plants that will be currently in bloom in the meadow to help chart the path for its ongoing restoration.

 

Participants of all skill levels and experience are encouraged to attend!  Printed paper guides and/or the iNaturalist phone app will provide all the tools you need. To use the electronic aid, download and set up the iNaturalist app before you arrive.

 

We can’t wait to see you!

What is a BioBlitz?

It’s an inventory of living things. Our BioBlitz will check for the presence of native flowers, sedges, and grasses that have been planted in the meadow. The area is gridded off to make it easier to keep track of it all. This activity is part of the ongoing effort to restore the meadow and collect data to guide its ongoing restoration plan to benefit the wildlife in this special habitat.  Please join us in this worthwhile venture.

 

FAQ:

  • What do I need to wear?  We recommend wearing pants, long sleeves, and closed-toed shoes.
  • What do I need to bring?  Bring gardening gloves, a reusable water bottle, and a hat for shade. If you don’t have gloves, we’ll have some that you can borrow.
  • What age can participate?  We recommend participants be over the age of 10, but all ages are welcome. Children 17 and younger must be accompanied by an adult.
  • Are there restrooms?  Restrooms are available inside the gift shop when the shop is open, but not at the BioBlitz site.
  • Can I use this event for service hours?  This event is great for anyone who needs service hours. Bring any needed documentation with you. We’ll complete it at the BioBlitz.
  • What if the weather is bad?  The BioBlitz is weather-dependent. If needed, we’ll coordinate a rescheduled date.
