Join the Columbia Land Conservancy and Cornell Cooperative Extension of Columbia and Greene Counties for our first ever BioBlitz at Siegel-Kline Kill Conservation Area!
The BioBlitz is an event held to survey a location for birds, trees, butterflies, fish, amphibians, mammals, and more! This event is coordinated so that all naturalists – scientists and citizen scientists alike – can explore the site, identify what they discover, and come together at the end to count species and record the data.
Join expert naturalists in a race against the clock to identify as many species of plants and animals at Siegel-Kline Kill Conservation Area as possible. You can attend one or all of the scheduled guided hikes listed below, please arrive at your own convenience..
Bring your smart phone or other mobile device, tick preventative clothing, binoculars, and field guides if you have them. We suggest downloading the iNaturalist app to your phone before you come – it’s free! Please be sure to register so that we can be in touch in the event of a cancellation.
Here’s a schedule for the day – feel free to come for the full event, or drop in when it’s convenient for you. We ask that you leave your dogs at home, as they may scare wildlife.
