As part of Watershed Action Day in downtown San Jose, you can join 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 this 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.
Docents will guide you and teach you to use the iNaturalist app on your smartphone or tablet to record all the living things you encounter: flowers, trees, butterflies, dragonflies, beetles, birds, and squirrels.
Additional activities on this day include a creek cleanup, park beautification, and bird walk.
