Join Dr. Dan Levitis on this accessible, no-hike nature observation. No mobility is required, as we will simply pick a spot (or two) and enjoy the sights, sounds, and smells– and if possible, document them via the iNaturalist app. If you haven’t used iNaturalist, or haven’t made an observation for a while, this is your chance – just make sure to load the iNaturalist app on your phone before you arrive. The event is $5 and limited to 12 participants. Meet outside the Visitor Center. Bring water, a fully-charged mobile device, sun protection, binoculars/ a hand lens, and if you’d like, something comfortable to sit on. We will observe County Health orders including mask-wearing and physical distancing. Parking fees apply.
City Nature Challenge runs from April 30th to May 3rd, 2021. It’s a bioblitz-style competition where cities are in a contest against each other to see who can make the most observations of nature, who can find the most species, and who can engage the most people.
This event is part of the Challenge along with other events scheduled from 4/30-5/3.
