  U.S. Parks ‘Blitzed’ in Celebration of Biodiversity Across America

  • More than a hundred U.S. national parks and partner sites are hosting a nationwide BioBlitz across America the weekend of the 20th and 21st of May.
  • Tens of thousands of people are expected to participate in the National Parks BioBlitz, the tenth in a series of BioBlitzes hosted by the National Park Service (NPS) and the National Geographic Society. Since 2007, as part of the run-up to this year’s NPS Centennial, the two organizations have collaborated to host annual BioBlitzes in different national parks close to major urban areas.
  • The National Park Service and the National Geographic Society will team up for a nationwide National Parks BioBlitz, a fast-paced expedition to discover and document the species that thrive in national parks. Sponsored by American Express, this free public event at more than 100 national parks and partner sites across the United States will bring together scientists, naturalists, students, and families to explore and celebrate biodiversity.”
