Winter BioBlitz at Hellyer Park

February 11 @ 12:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Parks are amazing and wonderful green space full of living things.
Just using your phone, help us discover them!

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 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. 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 smart phone with the iNaturalist app!

So bring your family and prepare for an in-depth tour of this great trail.

*Community service hours available*

Hosted by Keep Coyote Creek Beautiful , Bioblitz Club, Santa Clara Audubon Society and Peninsula Open Space Trust. Registrants will be added to the email contact lists of each organization to receive their monthly e-newsletter
