Want to participate in community science and enjoy the outdoors this summer? Then this self-guided BioBlitz at Cold Spring Heron Colony SNA is a perfect opportunity for you. For two weeks, head over to Cold Spring Heron Colony SNA anytime that works for you and make some iNaturalist observations or help identify observations from home. Additionally, on the first day of the event, Friday, June 24 at 6pm, SNA staff will be onsite offering support with using iNaturalist, identifying observations, and navigating the site. Please email sna.dnr@state.mn.us to register for the in person portion of this event. Cold Spring Heron Colony SNA recently underwent a prescribed burn. Come see how this site is responding to the burn - native grasses and forbs should be more visible and responding well! To participate, sign up on iNaturalist by joining the Cold Spring Heron Colony SNA Self-guided BioBlitz Project and read the journal postings, in which you'll find event updates, guidelines and tips, before visiting the site. At the end of the two weeks there will be prizes! Results will be shared with participants, and verified research grade observations will be featured on iNaturalist. During your visit, please wear sturdy footwear, long pants, and be prepared to navigate rough terrain. Can't make it there? Stay tuned for future self-guided BioBlitzes throughout the state. Remember, you contribute by making observations on any SNA near you! Directions: From Cold Spring 1.5 miles NE on MN Hwy 23, then 400 feet S on Co Rd 140, then 0.3 mile E on 233rd St. Park at dead end.
