2017 BioBlitz Survey Results
Save Mount Diablo’s 2017 BioBlitz brought together 35 scientists to catalog species during a 24-hour survey on Marsh Creek State Historic Park and Marsh Creek Reservoir. With their collective expertise, the group provided an ecological snapshot of the Marsh Creek State Historic Park and Marsh Creek Reservoir for CA State Parks and Contra Costa County Flood Control District staff. Participants explored rolling grasslands, creek channels, and the perimeter of the reservoir, logging plants and wildlife from the insect to the avian. Save Mount Diablo hosts annual Bioblitz events to better understand and protect the biodiversity of the Diablo Range.
