Second Annual Bioblitz Competition
April 27 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
Explore the Nature Preserve, spot wildlife, and record your sightings at SHADOW’s second Bioblitz! A bioblitz is a competition to count all the plants and animals seen in one day.
We will be recording observations via Smartphone or Tablet in a program called iNaturalist. Check out the iNaturalist app here. Bring a device with the app downloaded with you or use one of ours. This family-friendly event will include opportunities for walking while recording sightings- hiking shoes and weather-proof clothing are recommended. We are hosting this bioblitz as part of a larger initiative, The City Nature Challenge. Help King County and the Seattle Metro Area WIN for the most observations! Come join SHADOW to collect information about the flora and fauna present on SHADOW’s grounds! This is a national competition to see what area can find the most species of plants and animals. No experience necessary!
This event also helps SHADOW’s Wildlife Monitoring Volunteer Program and will replace our normally scheduled Restoration Work Party.
