Interested in what lives in Great Basin National Park? Come explore your National Park by helping ecologists identify old and new species by participating in our yearly BioBlitz program.
A Bioblitz is a short term event to learn about the biodiversity of an area. In Great Basin National Park, we are focusing on one order on invertebrates each year over a 24-48 hour period. This snapshot view helps us look at many different habitats over the same time period and helps us to look at many different habitats over the same time period and helps us to better understand what lives in the park. The next BioBlitz is scheduled for May 15-17, 2015.
Great Basin National Park will be holding a Stream Insects BioBlitz Friday through Sunday, May 15-17, 2015. Come join Dr. Boris Kondratieff from Colorado State University and other specialists in Ephemeroptera (Mayflies), Plecoptera (Stoneflies), and Trichoptera (Caddisflies).This fun-filled, family-friendly effort will help document selected insects that live in the streams in the park. The BioBlitz will include a workshop about the natural history of stream insects, evening light trap collections, guided hikes to streams with collecting and photography opportunities, and guidance identification. To be added to the mailing list for the BioBlitz and receive updates, please e-mail us or call 775-234-7541.
