Mini BioBlitz at the Mahoe Reserve

As part of this year’s City to Nature Challenge Ōtautahi we ran a Mini BioBlitz at the Mahoe Nature Reserve in Lincoln. Thanks to everyone that came along to make for a really successful afternoon with around 50 attending; enjoying the hunt for anything that flies, grows, crawls and hides!   The different life forms discovered were catalogued via iNaturalist NZ – Mātaki Taiao.

Grateful thanks to Mike Bowie and several Lincoln University students who were the driving force and did all the preparatory work as well as overseeing the activities.

A great project and I am sure that as long as the City Nature Challenge runs, we will continue to run it each year.
