    Very knowledgeable and helpful "scientist" leader, and a great team to hike with and inventory our bird sightings. I learned a lot! Representatives of National Geographic, the National Parks Service, and the conservation groups present were all very generous with their time and information.

    Actually, I volunteered at the Barataria Preserve for 10 years and my SO still does. We will probably be there but not as part of the meet-up.

    Just registered for 9-12 inventory, plants. I love gardening so I thought this would be great! Plan to enjoy the festival after!

    I'm signed up for a Saturday morning bird inventory, and plan on spending time at the festival in the afternoon. So glad to have an opportunity to be part of this unique event!

    Had to change my RSVP to "NO" due to an out of town trip the same weekend. Have fun at Bioblitz everyone!
