Location: Meet at Amazing Space (5300 Otis Rd SE, Cedar Rapids, IA 52403) before exploring Christiansen, Stimple and Cedar Rapids Prairies.

What's a BioBlitz?

Indian Creek Nature Center is hosting our first ever BioBlitz June 13 - July 1 as part of our yearlong celebration of our 50th anniversary.

A BioBlitz is a survey involving the community in efforts to document as many living things as possible in a certain area. Join The Nature Center and scientific professionals as a citizen scientist as you record biodiversity across Indian Creek Nature Center's grounds and trails.

Help us observe as many species as possible during the final week of June. This information will be extremely beneficial to The Nature Center as it will support education and land management decisions.

This event is free and open to all. How to ID Sessions will be available for people looking to have a more in-depth experience discovering, identifying and observing different species.

If citizen scientists wish to search for biodiversity off-trail, please dress appropriately and, as much as possible, not disrupt the environment.
