If you ever wanted to get up close and personal with nature, then a event this weekend is for you!

A Bioblitz is planned for Saturday, July 18, starting at 11am and wrapping up Sunday, July 19. This 24-hour survey of all plants and animals in the Ojibway Prairie Complex will involve experts and amateur volunteers working together to identify as many species including fungi, plants, fish, birds and insects as possible within a 24-hour period.

The Bioblitz encompasses the Ojibway Prairie Remnants in the City of Windsor and Town of LaSalle.

Essex County is extremely diverse biologically and is home to many of the province’s rare and at-risk species, and the event is meant to promote conservation, increase public awareness, provide records of important species and generate interest in our natural areas

People of all ages are invited to attend this free event.
