BioBlitz is a free species-counting competition designed to showcase the environmental value of the natural habitats found on golf courses. Participants such as golfers and their families, youth groups, community members, and local environmental experts gather to enjoy nature while counting plant and animal species located on each property. The program is open to any golf course worldwide, including those unaffiliated with Audubon International.
