2022 BioBlitz – Camden East Alvar

June 10 @ 3:00 PM June 11 @ 3:00 PM EDT

A BioBlitz is a party to document as many species as possible in a defined area within 24 hours. Our record is 996 species observed at Landon Bay in 2017.

The KFN 2022 BioBlitz is planned for Camden East Alvar, a property of the Nature Conservancy of Canada from Friday 10 June at 3:00 pm to Saturday 11 June at 3:00 pm. 

An alvar is an environment on limestone with thin soils and exposed bedrock. Often flooded in the spring, and affected by drought in midsummer, alvars support distinctive flora and fauna.

We plan a traditional BioBlitz with BBQ, guided walks and children’s program. If you would like to volunteer to help with running this event or recording species on the site, please contact Anne Robertson (n8ture.anne at sympatico.ca or 613-389-6742).
