Connecting Lake Simcoe's Community

The 2016 BioBlitz is a full-day event where ecology experts, nature enthusiasts and members of the community together explore, learn about and collect a biological inventory at Scanlon Creek.

If you have expertise, the BioBlitz needs you. 
If you just want to help out, the BioBlitz needs you, too. 

Last year, thanks to the help of community members and specialists, more than 600 species were identified at Scanlon Creek Conservation Area. How many species will we find this year?
