What’s a BioBlitz?

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.

At Temple Ambler, there is more than students and faculty on campus!

Visit campus at any time during 18 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.

This family-friendly event is free and open to the public! Register for the event by filling out the form below. Please note that all minors must be accompanied by an adult chaperone at all times during BioBlitz.

BioBlitz is sponsored by Temple University Ambler EarthFest and the Ambler Arboretum of Temple University. Register for BioBlitz using the form below.
