BioBlitz 2022: East Bay Bike Path

Date: June 10-11, 2022

Location: Along the East Bay Bike Path between Audubon Society’s Nature Center & Aquarium in Bristol and Brickyard Pond in Barrington.

We’ve never tried a Rhode Island BioBlitz like this: what biota live along 7 km (4.37 mi) of the East Bay Bike Path and the conservation parcels strung out along it? BioBlitz from your bike and reduce your carbon footprint. Contemplate sea-level rise as you tour highly vulnerable low-lying neighborhoods.

Science Central will be at the Audubon Nature Center & Aquarium in Bristol.

All participants need to be pre-registered and signed up for team. Though there will be things for public visitors to see, there will be no walk-ins for participating in the event. If you’re not familiar with BioBlitz and want to learn more about it, come to the orientation, May 12, in Providence, at the zoo. Even if you’re an old hand, come to the orientation anyway and enjoy refreshments and good company and recruit new-comers for your team!

BioBlitz Orientation: May 12, Thus., 5:30 p.m., Roger Williams Park Zoo Ed. Ctr., RSVP required.

Teams include:
birds, mammals, fish, vascular plants, art, mosses, butterflies, dragonflies, soil invertebrates, reptiles and amphibians, crustaceans, mollusks, moths, bees, ants, lichens, fungi, spiders, and anything else someone steps forward to count. You don’t need to be an expert to contribute, just curious and willing to learn. Artists and writers, bloggers and videographers welcome but need to register, too.
