Bioblitz 2011: update

October 11th, 2011 by Arboretum Education Supervisor, Patrick Mulligan

With a little over a week away from Bioblitz 2011, the various taxa teams are starting to form, but we still need eyes, ears and hands in the field!  Below please find a new schedule of when we’ll be looking for what. To sign up and join in the fun, contact Patrick Mulligan at or call 206-543-8801 and talk to Lisa Sanphillipo.

Space is limited; first come, first serve!

All teams will depart from the greenhouse (a.k.a. “Science Central”) near the Graham Visitors Center.  Participants must sign a waiver, so please come a little early and dress appropriately!
