We will be starting our fifth raccoon field session in a few short weeks from the nights of 13 till 17 January. Would you like to volunteer and get valuable experience with wildlife? Contact us!


The Tree Tops Park BioBlitz completed with great success this Saturday. We had over 20 people show up to help us document the species in this park. We logged almost 300 observation of 140 species. This was a tremendous success and we hope to take what we learned this time and translate it to even better BioBlitzes in the future.


We are conducting our first ever BioBlitz at Tree Tops Park this November. These events allow citizens and experts to come together to count all plants and animals in the park. Join us November 3rd to kick off our inaugural BioBlitz.


As October ends, so does our latest raccoon trapping session. It did not feel much like Fall, with humidity reaching 95% and temperatures similar to July. However, this does not seem to bother the raccoons…


All around the world, citizens and researchers are coming together to explore, discover, and learn about biodiversity in their local parks and nature reserves. In these so called BioBlitzes, new species are discovered, undocumented species are found, and families get to enjoy the outside together.
