Schoolyard Bioblitz workshop April 27 at Schramm Education Center

LINCOLN, Neb. – A Schoolyard Bioblitz workshop for formal and informal educators will be held at Schramm Education Center on April 27.

This workshop, from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., will inform about citizen science, facilitating Bioblitz events, using iNaturalist in the classroom, and resources available for educators.

A Bioblitz is a collaborative survey of the different species found within a defined area during a certain timeframe. It allows students to practice fieldwork, data collection, and the chance to learn from resource professionals.

The new Schramm Education Center, built on the site of the former Aksarben Aquarium within Schramm Park State Recreation Area in Sarpy County, will open this spring.

The workshop is free, but a valid park entry permit is required. Contact Alie Mayes at alie.mayes@nebraska.gov or 402-471-5631 for more information or to register.
