Do you BioBlitz?

After learning of the BioBlitz organized by Chippewa Nature Center in Midland, Mich., I have to ask, how common are these events?

Have you participated in one? What was it like?

I'd never heard of one before but it sounds like a great idea. Get together all sorts of people who have an interest in and knowledge of different facets of the ecosystem and make it into a competition to identify as many species as possible all across the board! fantastic =)

This is new to me, but I want to do one!
The closest I have come is the "Learning Log" at our local nature center, where kids (and adults, I guess) can explore this fallen tree and see all the crawlies and fungi that live on and around it.

We have them here, mostly through the University of Minnesota and the Bell Museum, but I know some of the area nature centers do them too. Here's the website for the Bell Museum:

There is a annual BioBlitz along the Potomac River just outside of DC. I have not participated in this, but another local blogger has.

some of our urban biologists here in TX have done them with school kids. they've been well-received and fun from what I remember.

They had one here in NJ last year at a local park.
