Adventurers, Explorers and Citizen Scientists, come enjoy a BioBlitz in the Palo Alto Baylands. On Saturday, July 20th from 10 am -1 pm, Latino Outdoors and Environmental Volunteers will be hosting this engaging event to learn a new skill and discover the beauty of slowing down to look around.
During this activity, you will observe the biodiversity of an ecosystem teeming with life!
Participants will go out in groups, accompanied by guides to take a closer look around us. Using iNaturalist, we will be photographing the different plants, animals and insects encountered during our time together. The ultimate goal is to create a digital snapshot of what was alive and observed that day.
Our day will start at 10 with an intro & overview of the day. Field exploration will happen from 10:30 to 12:30 with a recap at 12:30 pm. We will end at 1 pm.
The BioBlitz is open to all ages, please be sure to bring layered clothing with sun protection, snacks and lunch, and containers for water. Four-legged friends will have to stay home for this one!
Snacks will be available throughout the day for participants to restock and fuel up! Environmental Volunteers will also have iPads available to participants who do not have smartphones.
We look forward to exploring with you, reach out with any questions to email@example.com!
