Save the date for a week of fun activities during HaliBlitz! HaliBlitz will connect expert and amateur Naturalists with anyone interested in our natural world, all working together to identify species in our parks and wilderness spaces and celebrate our local biodiversity. Everyone is welcome to help collect data and participate in a variety of activities to learn more about the species in our parks and protected areas. 

Join us for species identification training and guided hikes at Blue Mountain Birch Cove Lakes Wilderness Area on Friday and Sunday of #HaliBlitz week, and for our main festival at Point Pleasant Park on Saturday, September 16th!
