        Boxerwood BioBlitz

"A BioBlitz is an intense period of biological surveying in an attempt to record all the living species within a designated area. Groups of scientists, naturalists and volunteers conduct an intensive field study over a continuous time period (e.g., usually 24 hours). There is a public component to many BioBlitzes, with the goal of getting the public interested in biodiversity. The term "BioBlitz" was first coined by U.S. National Park Service naturalist Susan Rudy while assisting with the first BioBlitz which was held at Washington, D.C."s Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens in 1996. Many organizations around the world have repeated this concept. Participating in these hands-on field studies is a fun and exciting way for people to learn about biodiversity and better understand how to protect it. Wikapedia
