Bio Blitz at Wakanda Park

The Dunn County Historical Society is hosting a Bio Blitz on Saturday, June 12th, from 8:30am-1:00pm at Wakanda Park. A Bio Blitz is a fun, intensive, study of biodiversity that focuses on finding and identifying as many species as possible in a specific location over a short period of time.

Scientists, families, students, teachers, and other community members will work together to get a snapshot of Wakanda Park's biodiversity. Participants will look for birds, mammals, wildflowers, reptiles, butterflies, mushrooms... all the nature they can find and document. People of all ages and skill levels are welcome.

This is a free event, but registration is required. The link to register can be found here. Participants are asked to bring a smartphone with the iNaturalist app installed or a digital camera.

Check in will be at 8:30 am at the Rassbach Museum in Wakanda Park. A short orientation takes place at 9 am. Groups of ten will explore the park with a specialist guide.

Wear weather appropriate clothing, outdoor shoes, and bring things you may need such as sunscreen, snacks, and water. The event will be rescheduled if the weather is inclement. It is asked that everyone be respectful and maintain social distancing outdoors as well as indoors. Mask wearing is required within the museum.

Help record the wildlife of Wakanda Park for future generations!
