Southern Jog



Prairie Bioblitz

Enders, Nebraska; Chase County

A bioblitz is an event that focuses on finding and identifying as many different types of plants and wildlife as possible in a specific area over a specific period. Most bioblitz events contain a public component so anyone interested can join experts and scientists in the field. Participating in these interactive events is a fun and exciting way for people to learn about Nebraska nature and better understand how to protect it.

While these events are fun and educational, they are also important – over the years, participants have identified many species rare to the parks where they were conducting their events. Nebraska Game and Parks Commission hosts several annual bioblitz events across the state.
