Home River Bioblitz 2021

Join us for this world-wide citizen science event and celebrate your local river!

Do you live near a river and are you curious to know what species live there? Or do you have the impression that many people are unaware of its wildlife? We invite you to join us between September 24th and 26th, 2021 to explore the biodiversity around your local river. You can do this with your family members or invite a wider community, dependent on your local COVID-19 situation and on what suits you best! 

By becoming a bioblitz organizer, you have the opportunity to take part in several workshops that help you in the organisation of your river event, and in the communication of the data collected and the story you’d like to tell. This is a great way to engage your peers, friends and family in the protection of your river, and connect to a global community that shares the love for rivers.
