Bioblitz at Roy's Redwoods - Hosted by Marin County Parks and One Tam
Join Marin County Parks and One Tam at the scenic Roy's Redwoods Preserve as we try to identify and document every living species we see! Hone your naturalist skills, learn to use the iNaturalist smartphone app, and contribute valuable data about our region's biodiversity. We will be exploring redwood forest, meadow, grassland, and riparian areas, and we expect to see early spring wildflowers! No smartphone! No problem! No experience or special equipment are necessary, just bring your enthusiasm for science and nature.
We will be taking observations in the field room from 9 AM to noon, and then move to a nearby wifi-enabled location to eat lunch, discuss identifications, and upload our observations.
Age, Skill, and What to Bring:
- Volunteers ages 8 and up are welcome. Participants under age 16 will need a parent or guardian present.
- Closed-toe-shoes are required. Bring layers in case of weather changes, and be sure to bring a hat and sunscreen.
- Bring a lunch and a personal water bottle. Extra water and snacks will be provided.
- It is recommended that you bring a smartphone with the free iNaturalist app downloaded. Pairing up is also an option, and we will have some GPS cameras for teams to use as well.
- No experience necessary. Training and guidance will be provided.
