BioBlitz at Meeman Biological Station

Meeman Biological Station hosted its 1st ever BioBlitz last weekend!  It was so much fun, we hope to make it an annual event!  We are grateful to Jonathan Carpenter (TN Geographic Alliance) who brought this National Geographic sponsored program to Memphis and the many local groups (Clean Memphis, Lichterman Nature Center, Overton Park Conservancy, Shelby Farms Park Lucius Burch Natural Area  and T.O. Fuller State Park) who hosted planning and strategizing meetings and brought organization and student groups to each of the five Memphis-wide venues.  Our biggest thanks and applause goes to our own volunteers, who came out for a few hours, a whole day, part of the night, and then came back for a second day.  Whether you provided your time, equipment or financial assistance, you and your organization helped make this event a success.  We Thank You!
