Welcome to BioBlitz Online!

The Connecticut BioBlitz is essentially a "race against the clock" to find out how many species can be identified in a 24-hour period in a 2.5-mile radius around the CREC Two Rivers Magnet Middle School. Scientists from University of Connecticut and the New England area will be teaming up with students from Two Rivers to gather specimens and analyze data. Photographs of the species we uncover will be posted throught the BioBlitz on the "Species Gallery" page, managed by Dr. Paul O. Lewis from UConn, and general event photo albums will be put on the "Event" page.

The BioBlitz is over, but if you would like a larger copy of one of the images, please email us at bioblitz@q-kid.net with your request. Thanks for visiting the BioBlitz website!
