Did you know that the High Line Canal provides a habitat for nearly 450 plant species? Are you curious about what these plant species might be?

Join the High Line Canal Conservancy and Denver Botanic Gardens this summer for a series of botanical bioblitzes and become a Citizen Scientist! Help us observe and record the unique plant species that calls the High Line Canal home.

Whether you live near the High Line Canal or want to learn more about plant species in your area, we invite you to join us and learn about biodiversity, contribute to research and spend some time outdoors!

Want to join us?

  • Attend one of the Bioblitz Trainings! Trainings will be held at the Denver Botanic Gardens where you will learn more about what a Bioblitz is and orient yourself with the iNaturalist App that we will be using to record our observations.
  • Seven Bioblitzes will be held throughout the summer along the High Line Canal – attend as many as you’d like! During these bioblitzes, you will have the opportunity to learn how to identify plant species with naturalist and educators and learn about the unique plant biodiversity that the Canal has to offer!
