Calling all biologists and naturalists to lead inventories

If you are a professional biologist or seasoned naturalist and plan to be in Washington DC this coming May, the EOL team would like to draw your attention to an upcoming opportunity for you to participate in an exciting annual event.

Please register now for the National Parks BioBlitz in Washington D.C. on Friday, May 20 and Saturday, May 21, 2016.

This is a wonderful opportunity to share your knowledge about biodiversity with the general public and a great way to encourage the next generation of biologists in the field through participation in a hands-on live inventory.

We are extending the deadline to Friday, February 26 for experts. The sooner you can register, the better!

Thanks from the EOL Team
