The Mount Washington Community Development Corporation, in partnership with the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy, will host a BioBlitz event in Emerald View Park on Saturday, June 7 from 10 a.m. -2 p.m. At the BioBlitz, community volunteers work alongside scientists to conduct a biological inventory of living things in a natural area. The event will be held in the Olympia Park section of Emerald View Park, with teams of scientists and volunteers heading into the park to collect samples of animals, plants, insects, mushrooms, etc. and then identify and catalogue them at the “field laboratory” to be set up in the park. There will also be hands-on nature crafts and activities for all ages—so bring the family out for this fun, educational outdoor event!
