How many different species can we find in Hancock during Old Home Days weekend? Join us for a fun, family-friendly weekend of exploration and community science! All iNaturalist observations made between August 19 and 21 within Hancock town boundaries will automatically be included in this BioBlitz project. Enter sightings from your own backyard, a town conservation property, or Harris Center land.

To learn more and participate as part of a group, join ecologist Steven Lamonde and others for this in-person iNaturalist training and easygoing morning of BioBlitzing. (Participants are also encouraged to attend the Hancock BioBlitz online information session on August 16.)

9 to 11 a.m. at the Harris Center. We’ll start outside, then move indoors to review our findings. Space is limited, and registration is required. For general information about Harris Center field trips, including questions about accessibility, see our Outings Information page. For questions about this particular outing, please contact Steven.

Co-sponsored by the Harris Center for Conservation Education, the Hancock Conservation Commission, and Moosewood Ecological.
