BioBlitz is a hit with local students
In the early morning hours, Vizcaya is full of activity—birds. Scientist and birder Dr. John Withey gave the students an opportunity to explore the estate before they opened for the day, when the local birds are most active.
The event at Vizcaya gathered local scientists from institutions throughout Miami, such as CARTHE Research and The University of Miami Rosenstiel School of Marine & Atmospheric Science. Stations were set up throughout the property to teach the students about the various local habitats and the animals that reside therein through hands-on activities.
Stations included: Birds and Butterflies, Reptiles, Marine Life, and Bugs.
