Come explore wilderness and coastline spaces in Halifax as part of HaliBlitz, a BioBlitz150 event happening from September 11 to 17. HaliBlitz connects biodiversity experts with anyone interested in our natural world, working together to identify the wildlife in our parks and wilderness spaces, celebrating local biodiversity.
We’re asking people to join us in learning about the different plant, insect, fungi, birds, and other species you can find in Point Pleasant Park and Blue Mountain Birch Cove Lakes Wilderness Area (the proposed site of an urban Regional Park nearly 25 times larger than Point Pleasant). Join us for species identification and guided hikes at Blue Mountain Birch Cove Lakes Wilderness Area throughout HaliBlitz week, and for our main festival at Point Pleasant Park on September 16.
The Ecology Action Centre and Canadian Wildlife Federation host this event as part of a national movement to inventory species through 35 official BioBlitz events. This inventory helps shape conservation decisions to protect wildlife habitat and choices related to climate change and loss of biodiversity.
Join us at HaliBlitz to celebrate Canada’s natural heritage, wildlife, biodiversity, and love of our parks and protected areas. Follow the link to learn more or sign up.
