Help us collect data on the species that rely on our protected land by participating in a Bioblitz at Armentrout Preserve, where we'll try to identify and document as many plants, animals, and insects as possible. Learning more about what species are on the preserve and recording them helps us make decisions about how we manage our land and allows us to monitor the health of the preserve. We'll also work on restoring habitat by removing invasive shrubs and vines. Before arriving, participants should download iNaturalist, a mobile application that allows Citizen Scientists to record data that can then be shared with the scientific community. Instructions for downloading will be included in your confirmation email following registration.
