In celebration of Jasper Dark Sky Festival, we invite you to participate in the WISEST BioBlitz! Anyone can participate as long as you have a smartphone. The goal of this bioblitz is to record as many observations of living things in Jasper National Park between Friday October 23 and Sunday October 25. So if you’re heading out on a hike, or going for a leisurely stroll around town, take some photos of plants, insects, animals, fungi that you come across and log them into the iNaturalist app in the WISEST bioblitz project! Did you know that integrating citizen science in young curious minds helps to promote equity, diversity and inclusion in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics)? WISEST is all about trying to make sure that young girls and gender minorities know that they have a place in STEM. Visit here for more information about our programs.
