What is a BioBlitz?

A BioBlitz is a citizen science event that focuses on observing and identifying as many species as possible in a specific area over a short period of time. The event helps to provide a “snapshot” of species diversity, providing researchers and the local community with baseline data which may be used to observe change over time.


When will this take place?

We will be BioBlitzing on Sunday, April 28, 2019 from 8:00am to 1:00pm near the Library of the Canyons which is part of Black Star Canyon Wilderness Park. Pick a self-guided trail, which range in difficulty from easy to strenuous, and observe for animals, plants, fungi, and other living organisms! There will be Irvine Ranch Conservancy volunteers and staff to help with directions and identification along the way. This is a family-friendly event so bring your future scientists too!


How do I participate?

You will need a smartphone with the iNaturalist app installed. iNaturalist is a crowdsourced species identification system that allows you to record what you see in nature. It also serves as a way to connect with other nature enthusiasts and to learn more about the natural world. The free app may be downloaded for Android or iOS.
