Event Description:  Explore with experts and learn about the flora and fauna of both Hoyt's Landing and Muckross State Park in Springfield, Vermont. Stay for an hour or pack a lunch and stay for the day! Learn about birds, trees, ferns, mushrooms, amphibians, reptiles, flowers, insects, and so much more -- many displays will be up at both locations and experts will be on hand to introduce you to the wildlife and woodlands. Bring your camera, binoculars, and/or smartphone if you'd like to take photos and upload them to iNaturalist to help the BRAT build an ""inventory"" of scientifically-confirmed species at both locations.

Join the project for free here: https://www.inaturalist.org/projects/2018-black-river-bioblitz

An ""early bird walk"" is planned for Muckross State Park with the Ascutney Mountain Audubon Society from 7-8 AM (plan to carpool, parking is at the Park & Ride at Exit 7); bring your own boat to paddle for one of the aquatic plant sessions or dragonfly excursions on the water at Hoyt's Landing.

A mushroom tour and a tree tour at Muckross will also be happening, as well as an exciting ""after-dark"" session at Hoyt's Landing starting at 9 PM (bring a UV flashlight if you have one, and your camera!).
