A BioBlitz is an intensive census undertaken by volunteers that seeks to find as many different species as possible in a single 24-hour at a specific locale.
They foster awareness of nature in communities and often provide much need data on species richness of under-studied regions.
They occur across Canada and there have been such BioBlitz surveys undertaken in the Greater Kingston region and adjoining area.
