Thank you for your interest in the 2017 BioBlitz event at the Upper Canada College Norval Outdoor School, part of the larger BioBlitz Canada 150 initiative that is taking place across the country.

Become a citizen scientist for the day by joining expert-led teams in uncovering all the flora, fauna, and fungi we can count. This FREE event is a great opportunity for community members of all ages to discover and explore nature together. Don’t miss our free barbeque and nature activities on Sunday at lunch between 1:00 pm and 3:00 pm!
