The 16th annual BioBlitz, scheduled for April 26 (7 p.m.-9 p.m.) and April 27 (10 a.m.-4 p.m.), and is sponsored by the Texas A&M Student Chapter of the Society for Conservation Biology and by the City of College Station.

BioBlitz is a 24-hour survey of all the plant and animal species at Lick Creek Park, which blends science and learning with the importance of urban green spaces to biodiversity. Texas A&M researchers will lead topic-specific hikes, where participants will:

• Assist with search and identification of species
• Learn about remote monitoring devices
• Learn about baiting
• Learn safe methods for hunting snakes
• Identify wildflowers and plant habitat
• Learn how to attract and inventory insects

Hands-on attractions include a butterfly tent, wildlife collections exhibit and a snake collection. Additional highlights include bird walks, “herp” walks, mammal walks, plant walks, insect lighting and child-friendly activities.
