About the Event

What's all the buzz about? Come grab a butterfly net and find out! You're in for a fun-filled session catching beetles, butterflies, bees, and many more insects that call Ijams home! You'll learn respectful bug catching practices, un-bee-leviable species facts, and how these amazing arthropods benefit our environment, all while using the iNaturalist app to make critical observations and be a community scientist!

All participants are asked to download the iNaturalist app before their workshop date and create a free account. iNaturalist will be a key tool we use during our BioBlitz!

Location: Participants will receive an email 3 days before their workshop date with an exact meeting location - we're trying to cover as much ground as possible!

Ages: This program is designed for ages 12+

Accessibility: Participants can expect to travel a distance of up to 1.5 miles during the duration of the program over uneven surfaces that may include rocks, roots, and gravel. This program includes various stopping points.

What is a BioBlitz, and what is the City Nature Challenge?

A BioBlitz is an event that focuses on finding and identifying as many species as possible in a specific area over a short period of time.

Ijams Nature Center is proud to partner with Zoo Knoxville, Discover Life in America, Sierra Club, and the City of Knoxville to coordinate a BioBlitz for the City Nature Challenge 2024. During the City Nature Challenge, cities all over the world will collaborate to observe as much wildlife as possible. Help us record observations of wild plants, animals, fungi and more to see how much nature we can find across the planet while learning who lives nearby!
