ArtBioBlitz! This May half term..
CALLING ALL NATURALISTS, ARTISTS AND ENTHUSIASTS - GET INVOLVED!
What is a BioBlitz? “A BioBlitz is a celebration of biodiversity. It’s an event that focuses on finding and identifying as many species as possible in a specific area over a short period of time. Students, scientists, naturalists, and community members join together in these events to explore the natural world.” (NationalGeographicBioBlitzGuide.pdf)
It’s Flushing Art Week at the end of May and we would like to host a 24 hour ArtBioBlitz! at Sailors Creek incorporating the observation, recording, and identification of as many species across the creek and the land, in as many forms of media as possible. All our findings and responses will then be on display around the site for the rest of half term.
WE NEED YOU! Are you biocurious? Anyone, any age, with any amount of enthusiasm or expertise is welcome to take part and contribute to this free community event. We would LOVE to hear from you. If you have experience of collecting data, responding to place using words, sounds or imagery, using quadrants, species identification, offering sponsorship, field guiding, foraging, using iNaturalist or ORKS apps and you can contribute to this event please get in touch!
