About the Event
A BioBlitz is an event that focuses on finding and identifying as many species as possible in a specific area over a short period of time. At a this BioBlitz, scientists, families, students, teachers, and other community members work together to get an overall count of the plants, animals, fungi, and other organisms that live in a place.
Docents will guide you and teach you to use the iNaturalist app on your smartphone or tablet to record all the living things you encounter. Flowers, trees, butterflies, dragonflies, and beetles, birds, and squirrels.
Note: Heavy rain cancels this event. We'll hold the event if we have light rain, which makes the event quite fun.
This event is hosted by Keep Coyote Creek Beautiful, Saved By Nature and Santa Clara County Parks.
Sponsored by Santa Clara County Parks & Santa Clara Valley Open Space Authority.
Co-sponsors are City of San Jose, SJSU Center for Community Learning and Leadership, and CommUniverCity.
