IRON RANGE TOURISM | BioBlitz at Sax-Zim Bog

The Bog BioBlitz, an annual summer event held in Sax-Zim Bog. Discover nature first hand with the help of their very knowledgeable staff on August 6, 2022! This will be it’s 10th year running and it has grown more with each step, along with their documented species which YOU can help grow even more!

The concept of a bioblitz started a couple decades ago…and for a noble but bittersweet reason; teams of biologists (ornithologists, mammologists, botanists, lichenologists and so on) were sent to tracts of rainforest jungle that were on the verge of destruction; their mission was to record every living species and every bit of natural history they could before it was lost to humanity forever. The concept evolved in North America to become an educational event where the public can go in the field with a specialist in any one of many disciplines and record what they find and learn about it at the same time.
