Sitka National Historical Park to host an intertidal BioBlitz on Aug. 3

From 8-11 a.m. on ​Saturday, Aug. 3, Sitka National Historical Park will host biologists from the Sitka Sound Science Center, who will work with the public to conduct a BioBlitz in the park’s tidelands. This is the last monthly BioBlitz of the summer.

Content experts will guide small groups of the public to find, photograph, and identify the diverse life found within the intertidal zone. The goal of this project is to attempt to identify all the species found within the park’s tidelands and capture some of the biodiversity found there.

This project is funded by the National Park Service through a cooperative effort with the Sitka Sound Science Center and these observations will inform the park’s all-taxa inventory of species.

Members of the public interested in participating can meet at the park’s visitor center any time between 8 and 11 a.m. on Saturday, Aug. 3, to meet the biologists and start exploring. We will provide the equipment and expertise; all experience levels are welcome.

For additional information, visit the park’s webpage at http://www.nps.gov/sitk or call the Visitor Center at (907) 747-0110.
