Dr. Marc Minno’s BioBlitz Courses (Clermont)
May 18 @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm
Bi-o-blitz (bi’-o-blitz) n .1. A gathering of people interested in studying the natural world, led by a knowledgeable mentor. 2. An in-depth study of birds, butterflies, plants, moths, insects, and reptiles presented in two-hour classes throughout the year, led by noted biologist and author Dr. Marc Minno.
Dr. Minno’s Bioblitz continues at B.B. Brown’s Gardens at The Florida Scrub-Jay Trail throughout the coming year. Dr. Minno draws on 25 years experience as an interdisciplinary scientist, ecologist, and author of six books and 90 scientific articles.
Beginning with an ongoing butterfly survey followed by a specific topic, each two-hour field course will wind through upland and wetland trails. Each ensuing course will continue the butterfly survey since each month will produce additional butterfly species, followed by a new biological topic. Some of these topics include reptiles, dragonflies, wildflowers, Monarchs, and amphibians.
The field courses take place from 10:30 am to 12:30 pm. Dr. Minno will be available for questions from 12:30 pm to 1:00 pm – bring a brown bag lunch and review what you saw on the trail. Please bring a refillable water bottle as we will have plenty of water available.
