TRU BioBlitz basecamp

The TRU BioBlitz is a collaborative citizen-science scavenger hunt to discover and catalogue as many species of plants, animals, insects and fungi as possible within six hours across the Kamloops campus.

This event creates a snapshot of some of the local biodiversity, providing an opportunity to engage with science while spending quality time in nature.

The observations generated by this event will populate a biodiversity audit for the campus and be entered into a research database for biologists.

Event organizers will guide you through downloading the iNaturalist app, setting up an account and joining the TRU Campus Biodiversity Network project.

This app is how you will record the plants, animals, insects and fungi that you discover in your travels across campus.
