August 23, 2008 – Bioblitz

This weekend Claire’s Envirothon was comped a weekend at a “bioblitz” inventorying animal and plant species on a new parcel of land acquired by the Iowa Natural Heritage Foundation in northeastern Iowa.

Here’s a good portion of the group.

One of Claire’s favorite tasks was mussel inventory in the river.┬á They were accompanied by experts in mussel, bird, plant, and others in completing a biological inventory of the land parcel.
