First Maple Run Unified School District Bioblitz Complete!
During the week of September 20th, 2021, the Franklin County Natural Resources Conservation District collaborated with Molly Magnan, FCNRCD Supervisor and BFA Science Teacher, to host the first ever Maple Run Unified School District Bioblitz! As of Sept 24th, 650 observations were collected with at least 136 species identified, with more identifications to come in future weeks on the iNaturalist app.
