Here's something different. Last Fall Lancaster Conservancy, in cooperation with Millersville University and a wide assortment of naturalists and enthusiasts, conducted a BioBlitz in an effort to catalogue as many of the species present in the Preserve as possible. In all they catalogued over 500. Now they've scheduled a second round to address those species which were not present or identifiable in the Fall. Come along to help or just to observe this unique event. Here's a flyer. Contact Greg Wilson for more information.
