Congratulations to our winners for our two Earth Day contests! Throughout our Virtual BioBlitz last week, over 400 observations of plants, animals, and fungi were made around our city. We are awarding prizes to those who found the most species and posted the most observations around the city and in our parks. A big thanks to Madelyn Chappell for making the most observations and finding the most individual species city-wide. Other top prizes for the Virtual BioBlitz will be going to Rikki Lucas, Jenna Veazey, and Carrie Pierce. You can check out the data collected during our BioBlitz here: https://www.inaturalist.org/projects/earth-day-festival-bioblitz-2021?tab=observations
