2022 Pymatuning Bio Blitz!'s Journal

Update

Hello Everyone,

I hope that you all are enjoying your holiday weekend! I just wanted to say thank you for all of your participation in our first Bio Blitz. We had a total of 65 different observers, 322 species and 541 total observations. I am thrilled to break 300 different species here at the park. I cant even single out one particular species that was the coolest, I think everything submitted was awesome! I am hoping to do this again next year. I will try to post the results from the other parks when it is all over. Thanks again!
