The Tree Tops BioBlitz is complete!

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.
