Ant Bioblitz

June 25-July 2 will be the annual ant bioblitz/competition. The goal is to strengthen our knowledge in ant species. The person with the most species within the confines of South Carolina and observed in the range of the event. Keep in mind the main goal is not winning (that was added for more fun) it’s for science. There are several species of ants unobserved in South Carolina. Most species are stuck at 1-3 obs. Please invite anyone in South Carolina to join South Carolina Commited Naturalists and participate in this project.
