CORNISH, N.H. (AP) - Several people have gathered at a New Hampshire farm for a Saint-Gaudens National Historic Site event commemorating the 100th anniversary of the National Park Service.

The Eagle Times reports (https://bit.ly/1U9f8qd ) that the Cornish park was one of more than 100 national parks to host a BioBlitz last weekend. About 150 students participated with park officials at the Blow-Me-Down Farm.

The event is an intense period of biological surveying in which participants try to record as many observations of different species as possible in a given area.

Participants used a mobile app called iNaturalist to take pictures of wildlife observations and identify species.

Biological observations made at Saint-Gaudens- and results from other parks -will be posted on the National Mall in Washington in real time.
