Thanks to coordinator Collin Adkins, Berkshire BioBlitz 2014 was a blast!! Collin is a AmeriCorps Member – MassLIFT, Service Learning Coordinator, AMC-Berkshires, South Egremont, Greenagers, Great Barrington, MA. He did a great job.
This years Berkshire BioBlitz was held at Fountain Pond/Threemile Hill Trail in Great Barrington. I never made it to the trail, I was too busy in the meadow, swamp and hedgerow surrounding the parking lot.
We found some cool bugs. Caroline had this nifty set up to use your smart phone to take pictures of tiny things close up. She studies algae, but we saw some daphnia too. Then a yellow warbler flew into the glass at the gym and stunned itself. It was fine though and we got a chance to see it up close and personal.
