NC Science Festival Mini Bioblitz
April 13, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 5:15 pm
Celebrate the North Carolina Science Festival by joining a park ranger in a citizen science project to identify, count and record as many species as we can find! All species of animals you can think of will be our focus. Park Ranger Kevin Bischof teaches what park rangers do to inventory park species. This program is specifically geared towards kids and ideal for homeschool groups. Meet the ranger at the Holly Discovery Trail parking lot in the Paddys Creek Area of the park. The program starts at 1 p.m. so dont be late!
