BioBlitz 2001: Middletown

Date: September 14-15

Locations: Norman Bird Sanctuary, Sachuest Point National Wildlife Refuge, Oakland Forest, Nune’s Farm, Raytheon Natural Areas

This was the second ever Rhode Island BioBlitz. It was held in September to contrast it with the first one, held in June, and because the pattern of having BioBlitz in June had not yet been established. It was just a few days after 9/11 and planes still were not flying. It was decided to go ahead with the event, given the circumstances, because it seemed appropriate to be together and close to nature.

The final species count reached 774 species.
