5th Biennial Biodiversity Assessment Week

Every other year, scientists and naturalist converge on Nantucket for a week of biodiversity related inventory work, research and public education. Experts in plant identification, insects, reptiles, amphibians, birds, mammals and many more spend a week leading walks, conducting research and networking. Anyone interested in learning about the biodiversity of Nantucket is welcome to participate.

During the NBI Assessment week, island and visiting naturalists and scientists presented daytime and evening events to highlight and explore biodiversity on Nantucket.
