Preservation Parks continues to utilize biotic surveys within our parks, so we can interpret the quality of our natural areas. BioBlitzes are quick surveys of all species in an area, usually done by several individuals over a 24-hour period.

Nest box monitors help keep track of nest box conditions and record the many birds that fledge from them each season. To assist with monitoring, or to participate in a future BioBlitz, please contact the Volunteer & Special Events coordinator Saundra McBrearty firstname.lastname@example.org.
