WASHINGTON (AP) - Scientists and volunteers will be heading out to national parks in the Washington area and around the country to discover and document the species that live inside them.

The event is known as BioBlitz and takes place Friday and Saturday in more than 100 national parks. It’s organized by the National Park Service and National Geographic.

Volunteers will team up with scientists to explore parks and take inventory of the animals and plants that live there. Participants will use an app to record their findings and connect with people around the U.S.

In the Washington area, participants will count bats at Constitution Gardens on the National Mall and look for birds on Theodore Roosevelt Island.
