LaSalle Lake SNA Bioblitz
LaSalle Lake Scientific and Natural Area, 8 miles north of Itasca State Park, is hosting a self-guided Bioblitz through Sept. 9. The Bioblitz invites individuals and household groups to become iNaturalists by exploring the outdoors and contributing to community science while practicing safe social distancing. iNaturalist observations will enhance the flora and fauna species list for this site. To participate, sign up at www.inaturalist.org/projects/la-salle-lake-sna-self-guided-bioblitz-2020 and check journal postings for event updates, guidelines, tips, before visiting the site.
