2019 BioBlitz Volunteer Form
D-Town Farm (3800 Puritan Ave., Detroit), Saturday, May 11th, 2019 9AM- 1PM

The Detroit Black Community Food Security Network is collaborating with graduate students and faculty from the University of Michigan to conduct a BioBlitz biodiversity survey at D-Town Farm. The goals are to engage citizen science, foster community bonds and discover biodiversity in the city of Detroit. A BioBlitz is a rapid biodiversity assessment that combines taxonomic inventory, public outreach and science education.

This year, approximately 80 children from Detroit will survey D-Town Farm in an effort to identify all common plants and animals in the five-acre farm. U-M students and faculty will team up with Detroit community members to promote the exploration of nature and document the abundance of life at one of Detroit's organically maintained farms. Additionally, K-12 students from the community will engage in an out-of-the-classroom, hands-on learning opportunities, as they interact with nature and build relationships with people in academia.
