MountainTrue & MainSpring Team Up for Black Rock BioBlitz in Sylva

Join MountainTrue and Mainspring Conservation Trust on Saturday, June 2 for the Blackrock BioBlitz, a citizen-science program that will pair residents with more than a dozen expert naturalists to document the diverse natural communities of Sylva’s Pinnacle Park and its highest point, Blackrock Mountain. 

“BioBlitzes are great citizen-science programs that help people connect with and learn about the natural world around them,” explains MountainTrue Public Lands Biologist Josh Kelly. “We’re going to be documenting a broad range of life at Pinnacle Park, including butterflies, beetles, aquatic invertebrates, vascular plants, bryophytes, lichens, birds, mammals, mushrooms and more.”

The Blackrock BioBlitz is a free event, but registration is limited. Sign up, today.
