About this Event
Join us to learn more about the diversity of your San Mateo County Parks! We are teaming up with the California Academy of Sciences, and Sequoia Audubon Society to bring you our first virtual Countywide BioBlitz! This bioblitz is in celebration of California Biodiversity Day!
Attend this free webinar with a tutorial on how to use iNaturalist and safe practices to take when visiting parks during the pandemic. This is a self-led BioBlitz with a webinar tutorial to begin. You will be emailed the Zoom link as the event gets closer.
Be sure to join the Project page on iNaturalist and download the free iNaturalist App: https://www.inaturalist.org/projects/bioblitz-2020-san-mateo-county-parks
Join us Saturday, September 12th at 9 AM for the free webinar tutorial on Zoom and then proceed to any of our open San Mateo County Parks at any point during the weekend to take a trail and explore and document all that you can find with the iNaturalist app. If you feel so inclined, see how many parks in our department you can visit and BioBlitz over both Saturday and Sunday! Please only visit by yourself or with persons in your household and follow all regulations regarding social distancing and face covering usage.
After your personal Bioblitzing adventure you can upload your observations and watch other BioBlitzer observations pile in over the course of the weekend. We look forward to seeing all the amazing finds you discover in your San Mateo County Parks!
