The first ever BioBlitz event at Camel's Hump Middle School was held on September 18 & 19, 2019. During this two-day event, Janel Roberge, Education and Outreach Liaison for the Vermont EPSCoR CWDD program, accompanied 65 students to a perennial stream site and instructed students how to catalog each of the organisms that they found. Ms. Roberge led a three and a half hour excursion on the first day. During this time she served primarily as a benthic macroinvertebrate specialist but helped students to identify other organisms as well.
