BioBlitz Alert!

The Community Stewardship Council of Lanark County and the Centre for Sustainable Watersheds are putting on a BioBlitz (Volunteer-based biological inventory) August 13-14 on a 1000 acre private property near Pakenham. We will be documenting all forms of wildlife (plants and animals) on the property and submitting the information to the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources. We are currently looking for experts, nature enthusiasts and volunteers. All experience levels are welcome. If possible, please forward this invitation to your members as they may be interested in participating. Feel free to post my information on your website as well. Food, overnight camping, canoes, maps, etc. will be provided.

Two similar events are planned near Charleston Lake Provincial Park (between Brockville and Kingston) August 27-28 and September 10-11. I can forward information about these events as it becomes available if you would like. Anyone interested in coming out can contact me at the Lanark Stewardship Office (contact info below).
