BioBlitz
Sunday August 28th 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!
