2016 Connecticut State BioBlitz

Saturday, June 4, 2016
10:00am – 3:00pm

East Hartford

The internationally recognized Connecticut State BioBlitz is part contest, part festival, part educational event, and part scientific endeavor. Scientists from UConn and other universities, agencies and nature-oriented organizations from across the Northeast will gather to see how many species of animals and plants can be collected or photographed and identified in 24 hours. People of all ages are invited to come and see Connecticut’s rich plant and animal life, attend presentations about biodiversity, talk with scientists and naturalists, and participate in the ongoing activities.

The University of Connecticut's Center for Conservation and Biodiversity will be teaming up with the Connecticut State Museum of Natural History, Connecticut Science Center, Connecticut Geographic Alliance, and Two Rivers Magnet Middle School to host the 2016 BioBlitz—made possible by a grant from the Richard P. Garmany Fund at the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving. For more information, visit
