This Weekend's BioBlitz

If you heard about the MN Bioblitz mentioned on Ian and Margery on m107, here is the link to info about the BioBlitz.  You can also find info on our FaceBook Page too (the Facebook page includes some of the possible wildlife and a video about electro fishing). Hope you can come, I'll be leading a bird walk at 6am on Saturday and we'll band birds from 8am - 12pm.
