If you are around the Vancouver area, we invite you to come explore the wild side of Vancouver on May 8th, and join us for a Community Bioblitz at Stanley Park!
The goal of a BioBlitz is to find and identify as many different organisms as possible. Join experienced naturalists to learn about our local wildlife (terrestrial, aquatic, marine), enjoy guided beach and forest programs, and help scientists identify as many different organisms as we can!
This is a FREE family friendly event open to everyone, and a great family activity for Mother’s Day! Rain or shine. This is a collaboration between Marine Life Sanctuaries Society, Science World, Vancouver Aquarium and other partners.
Register through eventbrite for updates on more programming provided by other partner organizations, what to expect for the event, and more.
