150 for 150

An informal group of us are getting together today for a micro-mini bioblitz in Prospect Park. We’re going to see how long it takes us to identify 150 species — including plants, fungi, insects, reptiles & amphibiansbirds,
& mammals — in honor of the park’s 150 years of vital importance to the non-human.

(Samples for illustrative purposes only. Actual results may vary.)

Also: check out the NYC EcoFlora Project mapping the spontaneous flora of the city.
