San Mateo County Parks BioBlitz 2020
At any open San Mateo County Park of your choice
Saturday, September 12, 2020 - 9:00 AM
Join us Saturday, September 12th to celebrate California Biodiversity Day with our first virtual Countywide BioBlitz!
The event will start with a free webinar featuring a tutorial on how to use iNaturalist and stay safe when visiting parks during the pandemic. To prepare, be sure to join the Project page on iNaturalist and download the free iNaturalist app. You will be emailed the Zoom link as the event gets closer.
After the free webinar, the self-led BioBlitz will commence at any of our open San Mateo County Parks. At any point during the weekend explore a park and document all the species 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.
Register for the free webinar on our Eventbrite page.
We look forward to seeing all the amazing finds you discover in your San Mateo County Parks!
This event is brought to you by San Mateo County Parks, the California Academy of Sciences, and Sequoia Audubon Society.
