Dryden presents the first BioBlitz in Upstate NY to take place on May 13.

Have you ever wanted to know what lives in our wonderful Dryden Middle and High School natural areas? We are going to attempt to identify as many species as possible on the school property in one day. Our BioBlitz will take place on Saturday May 13th from about 6 am to 6 pm. You and your families are welcome to attend as many or as few hours as you can. We may even extend the search to include some hours at night to search for owls.


BioBlitz events have been conducted all over the world the late 1990’s. They are an attempt to identify and describe the biodiversity of a particular area in a short amount of time (no more than 24 hours). These events have been sponsored by National Geographic, Nature Conservancy, universities, and national parks.


If you love nature, put this event on your calendar and come help our effort. The event is open to teachers, students and their families, and community members who are interested in observing and identifying organisms in our woods, fields, streams, and ponds. We will be uploading our data to a website called iNaturalist to share with the larger community of scientists studying biodiversity.


For more information and to express an interest in participating, please get in touch with Carole Erslev at cerslev1@dryden.k12.ny.us or Karen Taylor at ktaylor1@k12.dryden.k12.ny.us. If you have particular expertise in identifying certain kinds of organisms, please let me know.

Middle School Principal Mr. Farney challenged Middle School Staff during the month of March to bring in items to support our local food pantry, Dryden Kitchen Cupboard. For each item collected Mr. Farney deducted 15 seconds from the March Faculty meeting. Our staff accepted the challenge bringing in bag after bag of non-perishable items. Pam Seaman graciously housed the collection in her room and also kept a tally of all the items collected. The grand total was 367 items resulting in a 28 minute Faculty Meeting this month. Thank you staff for your support!
