More than 116 people went out to explore the wildlife in our Valley on our Biothon weekends of May 1-3 and 8-10.

16 teams went out from 2 to 24 hours, finding a record 651 different species of birds, plants, trees, insects, mammals, amphibians, reptiles and more. View the list of species here.

More than $19,100 in Biothon support poured in from 243 people. Thank you! Your generous donations spread the Biothon buzz and provide vital funding for all of Hitchcock’s year-round environmental and science education programs.

Congratulations to our prize winners!

Thank you to everyone who joined in the Biothon – and of course to our Biothon committee chair, Elizabeth Farnsworth, and committee members Danielle Barshak and Dan Ziomek.
