Come experience Wild Vizcaya and discover the site’s biodiversity with family and friends! Join a team of scientists and experts in identifying the many kinds of wildlife in Vizcaya’s pocket of preserved habitat. During this evening program, guests will get a chance to see the nocturnal wildlife at Vizcaya by employing techniques like "light sheets" to attract insects or go on treks to search for reptiles.
Additionally, there will be shadow puppets to explore the environment artistically and scientific illustration for old-school documentation!
Participants must be on site by 8:00 p.m. to gain admission to the program. Refunds for late admission will not be given.
This event is part of the 2017 BioBlitz, an annual event created in partnership by the National Park Service and National Geographic designed to catalog as many species as possible in a specific area over a short period of time. For more on BioBlitz, check out this short video.
