Stream Life – Phipps BioBlitz – Phipps Conservatory

June 2 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am



Schenley Park

Join Naturalist Educator Stephen Bucklin on a walk to Panther Hollow Run to document stream life as part of the annual Phipps BioBlitz. Get hands-on experience collecting benthic macroinvertebrates and learning how to identify these fascinating organisms that call Pittsburgh’s streams home. This event is family friendly but will involve a somewhat strenuous walk down and then upstairs into the lower part of Schenley Park.
