BioBlitz Info Night/iNaturalist Training

April 14, 2021 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

What’s Save Mount Diablo’s 2021 BioBlitz all about? How can I join? How do I use iNaturalist to upload my findings? Join us to learn more!

About this Event

Join Save Mount Diablo’s largest BioBlitz yet! We’re covering the SCU Lightning Complex fire footprint throughout a two-week period from April 17th to May 1st and are looking for citizen scientists to help us monitor the plants, animals, and fungi, popping up throughout the burned sites.

During this Zoom session, we’ll provide more information about our BioBlitz event and do a quick refresher on how to use the iNaturalist app.

Save Mount Diablo is also teaming up with the California Native Plant Society (CNPS) for our 2021 BioBlitz. We’ll be using the CNPS SCU Fire Complex iNaturalist project to keep track of people’s observations.

While the CNPS Fire Followers project encompasses all the 2020 fire footprints for a longer period of time, Save Mount Diablo will be specifically looking at the impact of the SCU Lightning Complex. We very much encourage everyone to explore other fire footprints and to continue uploading observations onto the CNPS projects after SMD’s two-week BioBlitz ends.

For more information about our BioBlitz, please visit our BioBlitz webpage.
