BioBlitz Brochure

What is a BioBlitz?

To kick off the design of an ecologically-focused “Wetlands Park” in the unique spaces between Piers 70 to Pier 64, the team is looking to you to help crowdsource identification of as many aquatic and terrestrial plant and animal species as possible within the project area. After the park is completed, we can use this data to study the impact of our work.

    • Location: Meet at Pier 68
      • Public TransportationColumbus Commons is served via Pier 70 Boulevard by the 29, 25, 7 and 64 buses. The G and 79 buses serve Columbus Boulevard. The Delaware River Trail also accesses the site.
    • Date/Time: Saturday, October 5th, 2019 from 10:00am – 2:00pm
    • Register Here: We have many tours available so please register for specific bird, plant and insect hikes.  Portions of these inaccessible piers may be opened for exploration. A signed waiver will be required. Please wear appropriate footwear if you plan to access the piers.
    • iNaturalist: All observations will be recorded through the iNaturalist project page. We will be using iNaturalist to log everything that is found during the BioBlitz. Download the app from the Apple App Store or from Google Play. Learn more about posting observations here.
    • Questions: Please call 215-629-3215 or email cdougherty@drwc.org if you have any questions.

Please pass this information on to your networks and hope to see you at the BioBlitz!
