Whoa, we're halfway there!

Hello BioBlitz participants! We’re half way through our two-week self-guided BioBlitz at Wood-Rill SNA! So far, we have 76 observations, 66 species, 13 identifiers, and 2 observers! This is wonderful, thank you for helping document the biodiversity of this site and keep up the great work! We have one more week left, and we’d love to see a few more observers out at the site documenting species. Check out the previous journal post for details on visiting Wood-Rill SNA to make observations.

o A few fun finds so far are blue-spotted salamander observed by gamelaner and bittersweet nightshade observed by eecervantes. Thank you all!
