Valdosta State University has partnered with Moody Air Force Base to host Lowndes County's first BioBlitz at Grassy Pond Recreational Area, Friday, Sept 28th, 2018, 6pm – Saturday, Sept 29th, 2018, 6pm.

What is a BioBlitz?

A BioBlitz is a gathering of scientists, naturalists, hobbyists, and public participants (young and old), all working together to discover and identify as many species as possible in a specific location during a specific time period, usually 24 hours.

In addition to generating useful data for science, BioBlitzes also give people an opportunity to explore nature with an expert guide, meet new people, and connect to the environment.

How to get involved

Most of the species collections and kid-friendly activities will occur on Saturday, but Friday evening is sure to be a highlight for anyone curious about nocturnal wildlife. Click on the Activities link for a detailed schedule of events.
