WOW, What a Great First Weekend of the NANPA Nature Photography Day Bioblitz

What a fabulous start to NANPA's Nature Photography Day Bioblitz. Twenty-seven observers logged over 1200 different observations of 829 unique species. And you all are just getting started. We recorded observations from California, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Michigan, Tennessee, Florida, Ohio, Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Washington, DC, and Ontario Canada.

The most observed species thus far are Red Maple, Northern Cardinal, and unfortunately, Poison Ivy. You all be careful; you know the saying, leaves of three, let it be.

Keep up the observations!

Count Down to Nature Photography Day Bioblitz

The NANPA Nature Photography Day Bioblitz starts on June 4. Thanks to those who have already joined the project in iNaturalist. If you are new to iNaturalist, we recommend getting a few observations under your belt before June 4 so you can hit the ground running.

If you are an experienced iNat users, please consider joining NANPA Regional projects as well (just search for NANPA under Projects) so your past and future observations will also be included in those projects.

Remember, a Bioblitz is about quantity and biodiversity, not about light, composition, and depth of field. Besides, those things are second nature to NANPA members, right?
