Thanks to everyone who turned out for the the 9th annual Berkshire Bioblitz at Hopkins Forest September 15th-16th, 2018. Approximately 150 Biologists, students and volunteers from throughout the region took to the woods, wetlands and fields in search of as many forms of life as could be found. Taxonomic groups covered included algae, vascular plants, trees, fungi, aquatic insects, moths, spiders, fish, birds, amphibians and mammals. We even had a team out surveying slime molds this year! We are still compiling the results which will be posted soon. Thank you to all the scientists, volunteers, visitors, and sponsors who helped make this year’s Bioblitz a success.
