BioBlitz Volunteers Wanted

Wanted: Volunteers age 18 and older to work with small groups of fifth graders for a Baltimore County Public Schools (BCPS) outdoor science field study titled BioBitz. Volunteers will support BCPS Outdoor Science teachers at one of five local parks within Baltimore County (Marshy Point Nature Center, Cromwell Valley Park, Oregon Ridge Nature Center, Benjamin Banneker Historical Park and Museum, or Patapsco Valley State Park, Pickall Area and McKeldin Area). You can join us at a park close to your home or at all five parks…whatever works for you! We are specifically looking for volunteers to act as chaperones for schools that are unable to provide chaperones for the field study. While knowledge of environmental science is helpful, it is not necessary for volunteering. Volunteers must be comfortable outdoors, comfortable on and off trails and available from 9-12:30PM on the day they volunteer. To view what a typical day BioBlitzing with BCPS is like, click here. If interested, please email Tom Melito at tmelito@bcps.org.
