Sunshine, Salamanders and Slime Molds!
By Colter Cook
On the bright shiny morning of Sunday March 17th, over 80 wonderful Citizen Scientists came together to explore and record the plants and wildlife of the beautiful Coyote Creek at Anderson Lake County Park. Moving up and down Coyote Creek and and its trail, BioBlitzers made nearly 1000 observations finding over 250 species!
All these observations have been recorded and put into a national database that can help park managers better protect all these living things. You can take a look at their amazing findings at the Coyote Creek Winter BioBlitz iNaturalist page.
Despite the glorious sunny weather there were many water-loving living things out and about.
Many families and friends joined us for the event, and they shared some of their favorite things, like poison oak and slugs!
We thank all of the Docents and Explorers who took time out of their day to help with the observations within these wonderful places.
