In 2009, an American political economist Elinor Ostrom became the first woman to ever win a Nobel Prize in her category to date. Her winning presentation revealed her organization and care associated with economic governance and the social interactions with … Continue reading
On Monday, August 26th, I walked into Central Park without much expectation of an abundance of species (animals, that is) being uncovered by this Bioblitz event. I had been to Central Park multiple times and did not observe anything special … Continue reading
I assumed the Bioblitz was just observing animals. I was wrong. I wasn’t expecting all this work. I was assigned to the insect section and I assumed nothing good would come of that. I’m not the biggest fan of insects … Continue reading
Unfortunately, I was unable to attend the Macaulay BioBlitz event. As August 26th approached, I was eager to explore Central Park with my fellow classmates. I had already set up my iNaturalist Account in anticipation of the event, however, another … Continue reading

It was the first year that the Macaulay Honors College hosted this event and it was something quite intriguing. From a student’s initial viewpoint, the idea isn’t all that exciting. Spending a part of your day in central park observing … Continue reading
My experience at BioBlitz was much different than the other Macaulay students that may have attended. Like many, I too was skeptical of how relevant the visit would be and was pretty reluctant to attend. I had to change out … Continue reading
When I first heard about the Bioblitz, I wasn’t exactly very thrilled. All it really meant to me at the time was that I needed to commute into the city for another day, and venture to Central Park from Penn. … Continue reading
I actually signed up to be in the plants group, so think of me what you will. (Read: A friend and I had actually had a ten minute conversation before signing up online about how we’d actually die if we … Continue reading
Like many Macaulay Sophomores this year, I wasn’t very fond towards the idea of the Bioblitz. What I wanted out of a common event was something enjoyable and engaging that would prepare me for my seminar. With our first common … Continue reading
When I first found out about BioBlitz, it had already been too late to register online. All the sections my friends registered for had already been filled and thus I was forced to do a walk-in session. I must admit … Continue reading
When I was first told that I would have to go central park and help document the various forms of wildlife and plant life in the park, I was a bit overwhelmed. After all, Central Park is massive and I … Continue reading
When I saw the BioBlitz email in my inbox, I thought, this is such a classic opportunity for disaster. Its going to be the type of thing that nobody understands, nobody knows where to go, nobody knows what to do. … Continue reading
In all honesty, I wouldn’t say that I was extremely excited for the BioBlitz event. I am not much of a science person and when I received the email for the event I did not know what to expect from … Continue reading
Living in New York City, it’s very easy to become overwhelmed with the urban area, tall buildings and crowded spaces. Similarly, it is easy to forget how relaxing a stroll in the park can be. I have always seen Central … Continue reading
Marked on my iCalendar for over a month, I was quite anxious to partake in the Macaulay Honors College’s “Central Park BioBlitz,” on Monday, August 26th. My first concern was not being able to find the North Meadow Recreation Center … Continue reading
It was still dark out by the time I got to Central Park. It was eerie walking through an otherwise empty park at 5:30 in the morning — but eventually I bumped into a few other Macaulay students and we … Continue reading
