The Upper Delaware BioBlitz was modeled after the Monroe County BioBlitz, which compiled the fourth of its biannual inventories, with over 1,078 different species of plants, insects and animals catalogued in 2012. This year’s event will take place at the Austin T. Blakeslee Natural Area in Tobyhanna Township, PA on June 20-21. The site is just over an hour’s travel time from our region. It will be the first in-depth study of the 117-acre park.
