Interested in a volunteer opportunity you can do on your own? Are you looking for an activity you can do safely with your family for the holiday season? Want to find a new way to celebrate the start of the Winter season?
Join us for a self-guided BioBlitz event in honor of the upcoming Winter Solstice, from Sunday, December 18th to Friday, December 23rd. The Alviso Unit of the Don Edwards San Francisco Bay National Wildlife Refuge is an excellent location for viewing local wildlife and checking out native plant species. Join the project here: https://tinyurl.com/wintersolsticebioblitz.
The restoration and upkeep of our upland and salt marsh habitats is an ongoing project. We need your help to track and identify the California native plant and animal species that call the refuge home. We also need help observing which non-native or invasive plants have found their way into the area. In short, we are so happy to have you join us and are excited for you to get out on the trail and observe as many species as you can! We are looking to get as many quality observations as possible – please check out iNaturalist’s recommendations for making observations via your smartphone.
This program is brought to you by the U.S Fish and Wildlife Service, the San Francisco Bay Wildlife Society (SFBWS), and the Santa Clara Valley Urban Runoff Pollution Prevention Program (SCVURPPP).
