Great Walden BioBlitz

July 6, 2019

With participation of over 130 members of the general public and almost as many taxonomic specialists, the Great Walden BioBlitz was a tremendous success! We are just getting started in the compilation of results, but our initial read includes:

Professor E.O. Wilson addresses specialists
Professor Edward O. Wilson addresses a crowd of specialists at the kickoff of the Great Walden BioBlitz

Professor E.O. Wilson spoke to the participants several times during the event, expressing the importance of BioBlitzes in the effort to protect the earth’s biodiversity for the future.

For details on previous BioBlitzes in Walden Woods, in 1998, 2009, and at the Minute Man National Historical Park in September of 2018, see our Walden Biodiversity page here.

We will still be happy to accept donations to support the Great Walden BioBlitz and its wrap-up.
