What will you discover? At Temple Ambler, there is more than students and faculty on campus! Visit campus at any time during 11 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. Participants will learn how to identify plants, animals, fungi and more while noting what they find. These finds are added to an ever-accumulating account of the diversity in the Ambler Arboretum. Participants learn why diversity is important and can take their new-found skills home to their backyard or local park and start identifying what is there as well.
BioBlitz will include a variety of tours highlighting mammals, reptiles, insects, plants, fireflies, moths, fungi, birds and more!
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.
