Ecoblitz 2021

Calling All Citizen Scientists!

Ecoblitz logo

Join us for the 2021 Ecoblitz at Rancho San Rafael Regional Park on Oct. 1, 2021, our 12-hour survey of all things plants, animals, and environment!

Overview

A Bioblitz is a short-term, intensive survey of all living organisms within a defined area. An Ecoblitz adds a new twist by also surveying non-living attributes such as soil and water conditions. This provides a holistic, ecosystem approach to better understand the environmental conditions and features in which all of living organisms rely on. From this perspective, we are better able to track how changing environmental conditions might affect the biodiversity of a region, such as climate change, drought, or soil composition.
