Watch this space for news of our planned YES weekend BioBlitz involving the whole community, May 1st, 2nd and 3rd, 2021.

Are you free the first weekend in May? That is the date for our first Community BioBlitz. National Geographic says “a BioBlitz is an opportunity to take a snapshot of the biodiversity in a specific place. In a BioBlitz event, students, scientists, naturalists, and community members join together to find and identify as many plants, animals, and other organisms as possible in a short period of time.”

So if you live in Yellow Point, Cedar or Cassidy, or would like to visit one of our parks that weekend, we invite you to join the BioBlitz – the details will be on our website by March 25th. In preparation, download the iNaturalist app on your phone and start practising. Find any plant, flower or wandering frog. Take a photo, and the app will tell you its likely name, based on four million observations by Canadian naturalists. See
