Ocean State Ecology, Field Work, and BioBlitz


In 2016, BioBlitz goes national! The network of Geography Education Alliance has partnered with the  National Parks Service to bring hundreds of BioBlitz events throughout the United States (including many here in Rhode Island–details forthcoming).

Are you new to the idea of a BioBlitz?  On April 30th, RIGEA will host an event at Rocky Hill’s amazing Land of Fires outdoor classroom.  We will get to explore, develop field experience, learn more about Rhode Island environments, map our findings, and share strategies to bring these programs to our students, classrooms and communities.  We will  work on skills and content to understand our local environments more intimately.  What could be more geographic than that?!?
WHEN: April 30th, 9am -2pm

WHERE: Rock Hill School’s Land of Fire (Rocky Hill School, 530 Ives Road, East Greenwich, RI, 02818).

RSVP: Please RSVP (for a head count) by emailing rigea@ric.edu with the subject line “BioBlitz-Rocky Hill.”  

MORE INFO: This will be an indoor/outdoor event, so please wear comfortable shoes for the trail.  More information will be forthcoming as the event nears.
