2024 LONG ISLAND INVASIVE SPECIES BIOBLITZ

June 1 @ 6:00 am - June 9 @ 12:00 am

Free

Community members across Long Island and New York City are participating in the Long Island Invasive Species BioBlitz 2024 for Invasive Species Awareness Week (NYISAW), June 3 – 9. The BioBlitz promotes knowledge and understanding of invasive species and empowers YOU to help protect our local biodiversity!

Participants are encouraged to contribute invasive species observations, along with native species observations, from across the region of LIISMA region – including Staten Island, Brooklyn, Queens, Nassau and Suffolk Counties. Bioblitz partners are offering a Zoom webinar to teach invasive and native species identification and the use of the free iNaturalist and iMapInvasives apps, on May 30, 7:00pm.
