San Juan Island National Historical Park Flora and Fauna

The park hosted a BioBlitz, a 24-hour species inventory conducted by hundreds of school children and volunteers. Elders also passed on their knowledge about the island's flora and fauna.

Through a year-long program, high school students learned about the island's flora and fauna. First, island elders shared their knowledge about the ecosystem, and then the students helped teach the elders about new tech gadgets such as GIS that would help monitor species. Then, together the elders and the high school students helped the park host the 24-hour BioBlitz for the entire island community.
