About The Event
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 Coyote Valley BioBlitz where you and experts come together to explore around Coyote Creek, and document observations of all living things in a short period of time.
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!
And, if you don't want to bend over to see that spider, you can pick up a litter stick and bucket and collect the litter near Coyote Creek to keep it clean. Every little piece counts!
This event is co-hosted by Keep Coyote Creek Beautiful and Santa Clara County Parks.
Co-sponsors are Santa Clara Valley Open Space Authority, Santa Clara Valley Audubon Society, SJSU Center for Community Learning and Leadership, and CommUniverCity.
