At Temple Ambler, there is more than students and faculty on campus!
Visit campus at any time during 24 hours of discovery in the Ambler Arboretum’s woodlands and meadows and help us find out what is living in your own backyard! Join experts in helping to increase the biodiversity on campus.
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. At a bioblitz, scientists, families, students, teachers and other community members work together to get an overall count of plants, animals, fungi and other living creatures.
This family-friendly event is free and open to the public!
BioBlitz is sponsored by Temple University Ambler EarthFest and the Ambler Arboretum of Temple University.
Please Note: In addition to regular inter-campus bus service, an additional bus will depart Temple Ambler from the Learning Center Parking lot at 9 p.m., Friday, October 6, traveling to Main Campus to accommodate students, faculty and staff that would like to participate in the BioBlitz. On Saturday, October 7, a bus will depart Main Campus from 12th Street & Pollet Walk for Temple Ambler at 7 a.m. A bus returning to Main Campus will leave the Ambler Campus at 12 p.m.
