Sign up for Merck Forest's 3rd Annual BioBlitz!

Happy Wednesday Merck community! We are 24 days away from Merck Forest’s 3rd Annual BioBlitz and the excitement is building! Today’s post is going to cover exactly how you sign up and prepare for the BioBlitz.

If you’re still wondering what a BioBlitz is, check out this Facebook post or this iNaturalist explanation.

The three most important steps in preparing for the BioBlitz are:

  1. Register for the BioBlitz on the Merck Forest website here
  2. Print out and bring a Merck Forest liability waiver to the event (the link will initiate a download)
  3. Create or login to an iNaturalist account and then join the Merck Forest BioBlitz 2021 Project here by clicking “Join”

If you’re still unsure about what iNaturalist is or how to use it, check out this Facebook post or this iNaturalist journal post.

We highly recommend you try out iNaturalist before coming, but there will be expert guidance on how to use iNaturalist at Merck Forest during the BioBlitz!

Other things to consider when preparing for the BioBlitz:

  • Bring enough food and water to get you through the day; snacks and drinks can also be purchased at the Visitor’s Center
  • Check the weather and wear appropriate clothing
  • Bring field guides if you have them! There will be various field guides available for check out, and keep an eye out for a post about online resources you can use on a smart device

See you in 24 days!
