Nature Nerd Bioblitz at Point Molate, Richmond, CA
Join us for a super fun and FREE half-day citizen science Nature Nerd bioblitz at Pt. Molate in Richmond, CA. Get ready to enjoy being a community scientist by observing and photo-documenting what's living at this jewel of a haven for osprey, shorebirds, pipevine swallowtail, native bees and many other species. (Here's where you can investigate some of the species we've already seen there - already almost 100 species.)
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. This event is the first bioblitz ever held at Point Molate, a stunning, largely unknown stretch of the east bay shoreline. We'd like to begin to establish a baseline for what is living in this wild and woolly area near the Chevron refinery.
Bring your smartphone or another camera, sunblock, water to stay hydrated, snacks, your kids, and prepare for maximum wonderment.
We'll be uploading photos to iNaturalist.org. Feel free to familiarize yourself beforehand. We will also do a short orientation to iNat in the first 15 minutes at 9am. We'll gather again between 11:30 to 12 on the beach to compare shots and have an iNat load-your-photos party. Our observations will be added to the iNaturalist project, Point Molate, Richmond, CA
Learn more about this project on Wholly H2O's project page for The WaterHood. While this is a free event, we gladly accept donations to cover the costs of this year-long project. You can join our mailing list to stay apprised of future bioblitzes.
