BIOBLITZ 2018

Ohio Wetlands Association invites interested naturalists to join our effort to observe, discover and report on the diversity of all living things on the Coyote Run Farm. The owners of this property are devoted to protecting and restoring the habitat where they live and the land around them in perpetuity. OWA strongly supports their efforts. Wetland restoration projects are currently underway. Come for a little or the full two-day event. Early birding activities begin at 6am. After hours mothing, owling and {bat}ing will be supported by campfire. Bring a camper or tent and stay over Friday night if you like. Some food, drinks and snacks are provided.

Participants are asked to use iNaturalist to report observations (alternate methods accepted). We have over 1300 observations and 625 species. With your participation we will confirm and expand this dataset in 2018.

Suburban expansion pressure in this region is intense. Deep knowledge and a well-documented, diverse biota will serve as a bulwark against those forces. Biodiversity growth is expected as restoration and expert stewardship continues.
