Earth Day is a great time to think about all of the living things we share our planet with. From the tiniest insect to the tallest tree, every organism that calls Earth home has a role to play.
As humans continue to build cities and roads, it is increasingly important to think about how our backyards and schoolyards can function as habitats for wildlife.
This year, we are encouraging you to spend some time exploring the biodiversity in your own local environment.
Follow the links below to participate in the Conservancy's 2022 Earth Day Bioblitz. We cannot wait to see what you discover!

Draw a picture that represents how you feel about Earth 3. Submit your work!
Celebrate Earth Day by participating in the Conservancy Bioblitz from April 1- April 30!
A bioblitz is an event where people come together to find and identify as many species of living organisms as possible during a short period of time. This data is shared by other community scientists all over the world to explore and celebrate the amazing biodiversity on our planet.
You can participate in your yard at home, or anywhere outdoors! You can spend as much or as little time as you want. The important thing is that you get outside and start observing!
