A bioblitz is an informal rapid biological survey of all of the plants, animals, and fungi that are present in a natural area. A bioblitz can be conducted by field biologists, naturalists, botanists, or anyone who has good general knowledge of local flora and fauna. The data derived from a bioblitz can be used as preliminary baseline data to document a “snapshot in time” of an area’s biological diversity. A bioblitz event also allows for ordinary community members to explore the natural world of their own neighborhoods by tagging along with naturalists that conduct the survey work, providing a unique educational opportunity. It can also bring to attention the presence of threatened or endangered species which many be threatened by urban development, invasive species, or other human threats. Having knowledge of the presence and location of endangered plants and animals could help us make better land management decisions.

A Raisin in the Sun 
by Lorraine Hansberry

When her deceased husband’s insurance money comes through, Mama Lena dreams of moving to a new home and better neighborhood in Chicago. Walter Lee, a chauffeur, has other plans, however: buying a liquor store and being his own man. Beneatha dreams of medical school.
