Part scientific endeavor, part festival and part outdoor classroom, the BioBlitz’s goals are to record as many living organisms in the Miller Woods area of Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore in two days, to increase awareness of the diverse species in this urban setting, and to better understand how to protect the natural environment in the future. 

“Explorers” of all ages are needed. The Paul H. Douglas Center for Environmental Education will serve as “base camp” for the BioBlitz and will also include a variety of other fun activities and learning stations throughout the two days. Advance registration is required to participate in a counting team for the BioBlitz. Advance registration is not required for ongoing base camp activities. To learn more about the Indiana Dunes BioBlitz or to register, log onto
