About Indiana Dunes Bioblitz
The Indiana Dunes BioBlitz was held May 15th-16th, 2009 at the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore. The BioBlitz is part scientific endeavor, part festival and part outdoor classroom. It is a 24-hour event in which teams of scientists, volunteers and community members join forces to find and identify as many local plant and animal species as possible. Participants comb the park, observing and recording as many plant and animal species as possible.
