Border BioBlitz 2024

Two Countries, One Goal: Protecting Borderland Biodiversity

Happening the entire month of May!

The Border BioBlitz is a community science effort to record as many species as possible along the U.S.-Mexico border and is made possible thanks to partnerships with Botanical Community Development Initiatives, Next Generation Sonoran Desert Researchers, and community members like you!

To join the discovery, all you need is a smartphone with the iNaturalist app (free for Android and iOS) and to join the project. You can make observations on your own, or join a community Border BioBlitz event!
