The Yale Peabody Museum's BioBlitz is being held in Stratford for a fifth time on October 8th and 9th. The goal is to find every living species in Stratford in 24 hours. You can check out all the details here: http://www.peabody.yale.edu/explore/bioblitz/fall_bioblitz2010.html
It is co-hosted by Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History, the Connecticut Audubon Society and the Beardsley Zoo. This year will be different in that the headquarters will be at Stratford Point, and not Beardsley Zoo. So this means that once again Stratford Point will be open to the public on the weekend, Saturday October 9th. There will be a 9AM bird walk, a 10AM butterfly/insect walk, and "open house" labs from 10-3PM, at which time closing ceremonies will take place and scientists will conclude the 24 hour blitz. Adding the White-tailed Kite to the list of birds counted during previous runs would be spectacular. You can find the great results from previous years on the page I linked to above as well. Please consider stopping by or lending a hand. The BioBlitz is always a great time. Save the dates!
