Join PVAS for its first BioBlitz at Cool Spring Preserve in partnership with the American Conservation Film Festival and Howard Hughes Medical Institute.
Learn how to use iNaturalist as you explore the trails searching for fish, birds, stream critters, plants, and insects. Visit with scientists who will share their knowledge and discoveries along the way.
