It's not often that the whole community has a chance to participate in science together,更难得的是，我们可以在力士乔木上这样做，an exclusive KBS xf187 PT安装版research site on Crooked Lake.
6月2日和3日，teams of observers gathered at Lux Arbor for the second annual KBS生物闪电战，a citizen science effort to document as many species as possible in a short time period.
"We know a lot about the KBS property,but sometimes we aren't paying close attention to the basics of what species are here," said Kara Haas,KBS Science Education & Outreach Coordinator."BioBlitz is a great way to get in touch with that,and get the whole community involved in science."
哈斯与其他KBS员工合作，piloted BioBlitz last year at theW.K.凯洛格鸟类保护区，and after that success,decided to host another BioBlitz 兴发PTevent this year,passing on leadership of the 兴发PTevent to graduate student Susan Magnoli.
"Despite it being a little chilly we had a great time!I think novices got a lot of experience finding and identifying species and everyone enjoyed getting a chance to explore Lux," said Magnoli.
使用不动产主义者，参加者于6月2日晚上在力士乔木上记录了313种植物，and in the morning on June 3.INaturalist allows users to record data about species they see around them on both web and mobile app platforms.
"The great thing about iNaturalist,and using it for BioBlitz,is that we're getting data that's accessible to the public and is useful for xf187 PT安装版researchers," said Haas."It can also be used as an education tool for teachers."
26 participants banded together for the evening to seek out owls,herps (reptiles and amphibians) and arthropods (bugs).The morning session brought together 35 members,who spread out to find birds,疱疹病毒，节肢动物，植物，鱼，浮游植物。
Participants included undergraduate and graduate students,as well as faculty and staff,and their family members.Undergraduate student Dylan McKenzie jumped in with both feet to look for arthropods in the evening and herps in the morning.
"I've never done anything like BioBlitz before,but I loved it," said McKenzie."I'd definitely do this again!"
