The Ojibway Prairie Complex is an ecologically important area within the Detroit River watershed with incredible biodiversity! The inaugural Ojibway Prairie BioBlitz – an event aimed at cataloguing as many species as possible within a 24-hour period – was held last year and over 1100 species were identified. This year’s Ojibway Prairie BioBlitz will be held on July 18-19 and we could use your help to beat last year’s record. The BioBlitz team is looking for participants, as well as volunteers to help run the event. There are also fishing opportunities, as a portion of the Detroit River is included in the survey area. If you are interested in helping highlight the incredible biodiversity in our region, please consider participating in this year’s Blitz.
Location: Ojibway Nature Centre, 5200 Matchette Road, Windsor, ON
Date/time: Saturday, July 18, 11:00 a.m.-Sunday, July 19, 11:00 a.m.
