Dear BioBlitzers,

It is with much delight that we report our final species count for the Virtual Land Art BioBlitz 2020.

Observations: 1,668
Species: 796
Identifiers: 266
Observers: 38 (from across the country!)

Plants were the most common find with 289 observations, with insects following closely behind at 242 observations.

A big thank you to each of you who took the time to sign up for our project and contribute your sightings. We are especially grateful to schachowfamjam for submitting over 250 observations!! Users
scotiaspinner, jpage_cwf, rena3, and gcart043 each had between 100-150 observations and we are ever so thankful to them as well.

Our time together is not over yet! We encourage you to keep identifying the species that were found during the event. You can do so by clicking here: https://inaturalist.ca/observations/identify?projectid=75302&placeid=any

If you missed any of our live stream sessions, we will soon have those posted on our website and YouTube channel (Wintergreen Studios) here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6E5DsCLWQ5IsmdToqBt16g
