A bioblitz is a period of intense biological surveying to document the living species within a designated area. Scientists and volunteers conduct an intensive survey effort over a continuous time period. This bioblitz in particular is focused on insects.

How

If you are interested in attending please download the iNaturalist app on your phone (https://www.inaturalist.org/), take pictures of any interesting insects or other species you see in the park, and tag them with our bioblitz project (https://www.inaturalist.org/projects/stanley-park-bioblitz-entomology)! Also, don’t forget to drop by out tent at Beaver Lake for a pond dip to explore the insect fauna in Beaver Lake, or for black-light trapping in the evening to get a look at what nocturnal insects are flying around!
