Milestones

Hi, all - I just put in a bunch of observations mostly from the butterfly weed that is in full bloom in the front micro-meadow at the BWorks office. These put us over 1,000 observations and 400 species for the BWorks HQ Biodiversity Survey! Impressive work for a small group of observers working and small and very ordinary property.

On to 500 species...

300 Species!

Hi, all, just a quick post to note that the BiodiversityWorks HQ Biodiversity Survey project just hit 300 species and 650 total observations. Impressive diversity for such a small property, especially considering that driveway and building occupy a good percentage of the site. Thanks to everyone who has contributed to this fun and interesting project!

BWorks HQ Survey hits 250 species mark

Hi, all, just a quick note to mention that the BiodiversityWorks HQ Biodiversity Survey project just tallied its 250th species. I think that's an impressive number for this property, which is small and partly occupied by a building and bare sand parking areas. Thanks to everyone who has contributed observations during the 2+ years the project has existed - I hope that even the project members who are no longer on the Vineyard take some satisfaction in seeing how sightings have accumulated over time. I expect that 250 still significantly understates the true diversity of this site, though many of the not yet documented species may be scarce, present only intermittently, or cryptic. So while we may have tallied most of the low-hanging fruit, there is still a lot of opportunity for the species count to grow.

We're closing in on our 500th observation, too (currently at 496). So project members who are still here should keep an eye out for snap-worthy wildlife!
