The 2017 Bruce Peninsula National Park BioBlitz will take place during the week of September 19th to the 24th. Not all the activities, hikes and events have been settled yet but we will update this group as more information becomes available. We will also be putting up posters around the community which will include a more detailed list of events. This theme this year will be fungi and as part of the BioBlitz we have invited mycologist Richard Aaron to lead a workshop and conduct an in depth survey and inventory of fungi in the park. Space is limited, however there is an opportunity to register for this 4 day workshop. If you're interested, please contact Richard directly for registration details. His contact information is listed on the poster. Rest assured if you aren't able to secure a seat in the workshop, there will be other guest lecturers, guided hikes, presentations and activities throughout the week for all to enjoy and participate in. We are also looking for volunteers throughout the week who have a background in fungi identification to help support or lead hikes and activities.
