BioBlitz
Saturday April 11th 9AM - 11AM
Location:996 Hellyer Ave, Cottonwood Lake - Southwest trail entrance, San Jose, CA 95111

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 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.

Join the BioBlitz where you and experts come together to explore a local Park, and document observations of all living things in a short period of time.

Docents will guide you and teach you to use the iNaturalist app on your smartphone to record all the living things you encounter. Flowers, trees, butterflies, dragonflies, and beetles, birds, and squirrels. We love them all - now let's go find them!

About Keep Coyote Creek Beautiful

Location:

5339 Prospect Rd #281, San Jose, CA 95129, US

Mission Statement

Our vision is a vibrant Coyote Creek: clean waters, abundant wildlife, and natural beauty that everyone can enjoy. We’re accomplishing this by both mobilizing community resources and participation, and by engaging community members to become the creek’s advocates and caretakers. Keep Coyote Creek Beautiful works with community groups, public agencies, and students to restore Coyote Creek through cleanups, plantings, recreational and cultural activities, and educational partnerships.

Description

Keep Coyote Creek Beautiful provides leadership to bring related community groups and public agencies affiliated with Coyote Creek. Primary funding is provided through a partnership grant from the City of San Jose and the Santa Clara Valley Water District.


Thinking cyclically about engaging the greater Coyote Creek community, people take care of the creek, which leads to gaining a further understanding of the creek, which leads to enjoyment and usage of the creek, which leads people back to caring for the creek. All these activities engage people to become the creek's advocates and caretakers.
