BioBlitz supports important research and documentation of regional biodiversity, aiding scientists in learning more about the local environment and ways to support its conservation.
By participating, you’ll get to experience amazing biodiversity through engaging walking tours led by expert guides, enjoy storytime and live presentations, meet local scientists and organizations, and create nature-inspired artwork! All ages will have fun exploring and discovering the region’s unique plants, birds, trees, fish, mammals and more! Plus, once you’ve completed three activities, you can receive 50% off admission* to Phipps from 9:30 a.m. – 4 p.m.!
The festival will be held on Phipps’ front lawn from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. with guided nature tours through Schenley Park throughout the day. The event is free to the public and no advance registration is required.

Sometimes the address and location information for a meeting point is not 100% accurate. Some parks and meeting point do not have a street address so it is difficult to program the map to point to the exact location.

We request that no one hunts a walk or foray location for at least two weeks prior to a walk or foray. It is only through your cooperation that we can have successful walks and forays. All walks & forays will be held rain or shine. Come 15-30 min early and socialize. All walks start on time, so be early, if you are late we will already be in the woods.
