Join Keep Coyote Creek Beautiful, Bioblitz.club, Santa Clara Valley Audubon Society, and POST for a BioBlitz! 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 at Hellyer Park where you and experts come together to explore 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!
The 4th annual Gall Week event begins in September! Please join the Gall Week September 2023 iNaturalist project, photograph galls between September 2-10 and upload your observations. This year Gallformers.org is partnering with the Forbes Lab at the University of Iowa and the Prior Lab at Binghamton University is conducting a pilot study to learn more about the oak gall wasp community in North America. Visit the Gall Week September 2023 project site on iNaturalist to learn more about how you can contribute.
