Park Volunteer Coordinator, Alex Gobel, would like to invite all interested persons to visit the beautiful Fakahatchee Strand to participate in the 2023-24 Fakahatchee Strand Bio Blitz! The Bio Blitz takes place on a series of seven different dates. Those interested in volunteering may participate in as many, or as few, Blitzes as they would like.
The Bio Blitz is an important activity which assists the park staff with understanding the wildlife trends within the park, and subsequently aids in the planning and management of the park. During the two-hour session, volunteers are stationed along Janes Scenic Drive, and record their wildlife observations.
This interesting opportunity occurs one Wednesday per month, beginning November 2023, through May 2024. Each month, on the designated Wednesday, volunteers meet at the Park Office at 7:45AM and then proceed to Blitz from 8:30-10:30AM. After the Bio Blitz concludes, you are encouraged to remain and enjoy the park at your leisure.
The upcoming Bio Blitz series will take place on the following Wednesdays:
• November 15th.
• December 13th.
• January 10th.
• February 7th.
• March 13th.
• April 10th.
• May 8th.
