takayna / Tarkine BioBlitz 2020

Tickets to BioBlitz 2020 are now on sale - scroll down for ticket options.

We will be running our BioBlitz differently in 2020 as a result of COVID19. 

Rather than running one large event out of Riverbend, we will be splitting our BioBlitz up into six different field trips that will explore and survey different parts of the Tarkine. We will be running the following field trips - Corinna, New Haven, Mount Bertha, Tarkine Coast, Que River and Rapid River. 

For detailed information on each field trip, please head here. 

Our BioBlitzes are an exciting, three day festival of citizen science in nature. Over the past five years, we have taken over 500 scientists, supporters and volunteers into the Tarkine landscape to observe and record more than 1800 species of flora, fauna, fungi and more. 

We bring enthusiastic citizens together with passionate scientists, observing creatures like the endangered Masked Owl or Astacopsis Gouldi, studying beautiful and minuscule myxomycetes and fascinating fungi, lichen and bryophyte, and identifying and recording the vast and varied species of flora that make up the Tarkine's ecosystem. 

If you are a scientist or naturalist and would like to help us by running a survey, please email [email protected] for more information. Unfortunately, we have filled all of our volunteer spots for now.
