Big Bone BioBlitz

  • Big Bone Lick State Historic Site 3380 Beaver Road Union, KY, 41091 United States (map)


A bioblitz is an intense period of biological surveying in an attempt to record all the living species within a designated area. Groups of scientists, naturalists, and volunteers work together to conduct an in depth field study in a short period. The goal is to take a photograph and provide an identification of each species to create a living library.

At Big Bone's Bioblitz, naturalist guides will be leading groups of park guests on multiple excursions throughout the day to identify species of a targeted class or order i.e. identifying birds along the Big Bone Creek Trail with Park Interpreter, Amelia Hulth. On an excursion, park guests might have the opportunity to identify a rare species, work with an expert naturalist, and meet local outdoor enthusiasts.

Organizer: Amelia Hulth, Park Interpreter and Interim Manager
