The nearby natural world is teeming with life! On Sunday, April 26th, we’ll be taking inventory of this life at Nearby Nature’s 2nd annual Bioblitz in the Learnscape and beyond.
Come join other volunteers as we take photos of all the plants, animals, insects, fungi, and more that we can find at our site as well as in nearby areas of Alton Baker Park.
We’ll upload our finds to iNaturalist for identification and a final species count. You don’t need to be a skilled naturalist to participate. We’ll have expert naturalists on hand to help with identifications as well as staff to help get you set up on iNaturalist.
Drop-in any time between 9 am and 4 pm, check-in table by the yurt, and participate for as long as you like.
All are welcome and the event is FREE, but we would appreciate it if you would register online so we know how many people to expect.
Through the use of iNaturalist for observations, all of our efforts on April 26th will automatically contribute to the metro-wide Eugene-Springfield City Nature Challenge, which runs April 24-27 and is part of a friendly international citizen science competition to document wildlife in cities around the world. Observations of the Learnscape will also support Nearby Nature’s own efforts to foster biodiverse habitat within our gardens and outdoor classroom space.
