Southeastern Louisiana University’s Department of Biological Sciences organized the first BioBlitz to be held in Louisiana on Earth Day, April 22nd, 2007 at Tickfaw State Park. BioBlitz is a species inventory of a particular area, compiled through a full day of identifying every species the volunteers can find. The Dyer lab (then at Tulane) participated, and you can see our totals for insect species here. COMING SOON: BIOBLITZ NEVADA
