Drive-In at the Fairgrounds: The Big Year

Date: May 20, 2016
Feature of the evening: The Big Year* 8:45pmTwo bird enthusiasts try to defeat the cocky, cutthroat world record holder in a year-long bird-spotting competition.This film is FREE OF CHARGE and brought to you by San Juan Island National Historic Parks as part of their BioBlitz weekend extravaganza! Be sure to check out their other events during the BioBlitz.
A BioBlitz is a unique combination of taxonomic inventory, public outreach, and science education. At its core, the BioBlitz is species inventory in which teams of volunteers, each led by an expert scientist, find, identify, and photograph as many species as possible within a 24-hour period. This snapshot view helps us look at many different habitats over the same time period, and better understand what lives in the park. This year's focus will be on amphibians and pollinators, though the event is open to any taxonomic interest. The park is looking for field biologists, naturalists, and taxonomic experts to participate in the BioBlitz. But even if you don't have scientific expertise, come along anyway and learn while doing.

Parking is first come first served and will start at 8:00pm, taller vehicles and/or vehicles with storage containers will be asked to park in the second and back rows--thank you!

Radio tune-in on FM dial for sound.
