Help Gardens’ botanists blitz the High Line Canal! Denver Botanic Gardens and the High Line Canal Conservancy will be holding several bioblitzes this summer to observe plant species along this recreational greenway. Bioblitzes are short, focused efforts to document as many living organisms as possible in a specific area.

  • How many plant species can you find?
  • Hone your identification skills and learn about the importance of plant biodiversity.
