What is a BioBlitz?
A BioBlitz consists of activities to draw attention to the biodiversity of plants, and animals that live in Putah Creek Reserve. These activities include:
Species Counts:As a group we will count and document as many species as we can in Putah Creek: plants, birds, mammals, reptiles, amphibians, insects, and spiders.
Activities for the public: Kids and adults get to observe, explore, discover, touch, ask questions about, and enjoy the flora and fauna of Putah Creek Reserve.
Species found during the BioBlitz will be documented using iNaturalist and recorded in a National database. (For more information about iNaturalist visit iNaturalist.org).
