Dr. Park leads fish survey for BioBlitz at the NY Botanical Gardens

Posted by Fernando.Arzola on Thursday September 4, 2014


On Sept. 6-7, Dr. Peter Park, Assistant Profesor of Biology, will be involved in a "BioBlitz" event at the NY Botanical Gardens in the Bronx. During a BioBlitz, biologists intensely survey wildlife within a designated site for 24 hours. This data can then be used for a variety of research purposes.

Dr. Park will represent Nyack College as the event's Fish Taxon Leader. He will be leading groups of students to seine parts of the lakes and the Bronx River at the gardens, to identify the types of fishes inhabiting this area of the Bronx.

This year's BioBlitz is hosted by Macaulay Honors College and the NY Botanical Garden. The event will involve over 20 biologists and 400 students.
