Otter Rock Marine Reserve BioBlitz
July 14 @ 8:00 am - 4:00 pm
Join us for a BioBlitz at Devil’s Punchbowl State Natural Area on July 14!
A BioBlitz is an intensive survey of a defined area on a single day with the goal of identifying all the species to be found in that area at one time. It is a snapshot of biodiversity. Come explore Oregon’s coastal waters while enjoying citizen science activities aimed at helping local scientists better catalogue and monitor the species of the region!
To get involved download the iNaturalist app (https://www.inaturalist.org/). This is a useful tool that enables any observer of the natural world, of any skill level, to contribute information to a vast national database. This is the method by which participants will contribute to the Bioblitz.
The event is free, everyone is welcome, and those of any skill level can help. There is also an optional training session at Beverly Beach State Park on Friday, July 13 at 6:30 PM.
