The second Southeast Alaska Bioblitz will be based on the University of Alaska Southeast campus, and cover Auke Lake, Auke Creek, Auke Bay, and the surrounding environs. A starting gun will launch the 24-hour event at 1 pm on Saturday, June 18 2011 as scientists and volunteers of all ages will disperse throughout the watershed to survey amphibians, birds, fish, fungi, lichens, and mammals, search for invasive plants and collect freshwater, marine, and terrestrial invertebrates. A full schedule of educational activities and scientific presentations will complement the survey efforts. By 2 pm on Sunday, June 19 the survey teams will tally the species and produce a final count, seeing if we meet or beat the 797 species found last year in the Fish Creek Watershed on Douglas Island. This annual event in Southeast Alaska is growing in popularity as we look forward to seeing you June 18-19 at UAS in the Auke Creek Watershed!
