I'm not sure if The Montpelier Bioblitz is supposed to appeal to nature lovers or just people who like to count crap but folks seem to be excited about it. So, I thought it was worth a post.

Apparently, hundreds of scientists, naturalists and people who like to walk in the woods and count will be descending upon Montpelier this weekend to...well...count everything. From 3pm on Saturday, July 11 until 3pm the next day, they will attempt to catalog how many of each species live in Montpelier.

I can just envision people replacing "Montpelier is the only capital without a McDonalds!" with "Montpelier is the only capital with over 1,400 hermit thrushes!"

If you want to participate, you can get all of the details here and register here. Start counting.
