Milwaukee Public Museum BioBlitz at Riveredge Nature Center

June 15 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

- Free

A BioBlitz is part contest, part festival, part educational event, and part scientific endeavor where the Milwaukee Public Museum and Riveredge Nature Center will bring together a group of scientists in a race against time to see how many species they can count in a 24-hour celebration of biodiversity at Riveredge. Educational programming for the BioBlitz will be held at Riveredge on Saturday, June 15th from 10:00am – 3:00pm. The public is invited to observe the scientists’ activities, to interact with them, and to participate in other activities that will be presented by the Museum, Riveredge and a host of other nature-oriented organizations.

Invite friends and family through our Facebook Event

Attendees of this FREE celebration can…

  • Go pond-scooping and sweep-netting for insects, and bring the critters back to the tent to identify and draw.

  • Grab a trail map and explore Riveredge.

  • See scientists in action, and ask questions about what we’re learning about the plants and animals at Riveredge.

  • Do fun activities, crafts and more!

“Only 1 in 4 Americans knows a scientist,” explains Dr. Ellen Censky, MPM’s Interim President & CEO. “The BioBlitz Festival gives children and adults the opportunity to meet and talk with our scientists about their work as well as participate in fun and hands-on programming related to the natural world.”
