Hopkins Forest will play host to the 9th annual Berkshire Bioblitz, to be held the weekend of September 15th-16th, 2018. Biologists of all stripes will take to the woods, wetlands and fields to find and tally species from as many taxa as possible, including algae, ferns, trees, fungi, arthropods, mollusks, fish, birds, reptiles and more. Teams of surveyors, each led by an expert in the field, will go out throughout the 24-hour period to look for specific groups of organisms.
This event is open to experts and volunteer enthusiasts alike. There will also be educational programs and demonstrations throughout the two days. In addition, a limited number of participation scholarships will be available for public school teachers from around the region.

See you on September 15th!
