BioBlitz at Hellyer Park

Sunday, February 11 @ 9:00 am - 11:30 am


Join Keep Coyote Creek Beautiful, Bioblitz Club, Santa Clara Valley Audubon Society, and Peninsula Open Space Trust for a BioBlitz during Student Volunteering Week! 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 the southwest trail entrance of Hellyer Park where you and experts come together to explore, document, and catalog all of the living things that reside there. Docents will guide you and teach you to use the iNaturalist app on your smartphone to record all the living things you encounter. Click here to register.

Flowers, trees, butterflies, dragonflies, and beetles, birds, and squirrels. We love them all – now let’s go find them! The best part? All you need to participate is a smartphone with the iNaturalist app! So bring your family and prepare for an in-depth tour of this great trail.
