Ambler Arboretum BioBlitz will take place in a variety of locations, including meadows, forest, creeks and gardens on campus.
Transportation and Parking:
All BioBlitz participants may park in the Learning Center Parking Lot.
Preparation before arriving:
If you haven’t already done so, please register for the event online at ambler.temple.edu/BioBlitz.
Bring a camera to record your findings.
Bring binoculars if you have them available.
Bring bug spray.
Exploring is a hungry business. Bring snacks!
At BioBlitz, you will be out among the trees and meadows and possibly in the creeks. Wear clothes and footwear appropriate for getting hands-on with citizen science!
Wear a baseball cap — when looking anywhere toward the sun, they are a huge help.
Bring along a jacket or additional warm clothing — it can get a lot cooler under the canopy of trees. Dress in layers for the weather.
Think green — bring a reusable water bottle!
BioBlitz is open to everyone! Bring family and friends along to join in the fun!
If bringing children or minors to the event, please ensure that they are accompanied by an adult on the trail system at all times.
When you arrive:
BioBlitz Registration is located near the trail system. Please be sure to register when you arrive.
The Registration area will include dozens of field guides and more to help you identify the plants, trees, mammals, birds, insects, fungi and more that you discover during BioBlitz.
Data gathering material will be provided to you when you arrive at Registration.
Be sure to send photos of your findings to firstname.lastname@example.org!
There will be trash and recycling receptacles located throughout the event. Please think environmentally and keep our campus clean! Discard debris in the proper containers.
You can always come back! BioBlitz is an 18-hour event. Head home for a snack or a meal and return to campus later in the day!
Join the BioBlitz conversation on social media when you use #AmblerArboretumBioBlitz.
Explore, discover and, most of all, have fun!
