Upcoming Events and Opportunities

It’s the final day of the Great Lakes BioBlitz!

Calling all Great Lakes Basin educators, youth and families:

The Center for Great Lakes Literacy invites all states and provinces in the Great Lakes Basin to join us in this year’s Great Lakes BioBlitz!  Check us out in iNaturalist on our regional umbrella project.

We challenge you all to make this last day your personal best for the number of unique observations you can post before 11:59pm today (May 20th)!

Week four observation photo challenges:

Terrestrial Challenge

Week 4: Photograph something that grows in the wild and bears fruit.

Aquatic Challenge

Week 4: Photograph an aquatic ectotherm (an ectotherm is an animal that cannot create its own body heat) but is not a fish.

Good luck!  We can’t wait to see what you see in your part of the Great Lakes Basin!
