Looking for something fun to do with the family this Sunday? Have you ever wondered what goes on below the surface of Lake Merritt? Well on February 23rd, you can find out for yourself with underwater robots called ROVs!

Come to Lake Merritt to check out the Bioblitz! Nerds for Nature have packed the day full of scientific activities that will be happening all around the Lake. Help conduct a survey of the biological diversity at Lake Merritt by recording observations of as many different organisms as possible.

Looking to get your hands a little dirtier? You will have a chance to get up close and personal with some of the creatures that live in mudflats of the Lake. And don’t forget to get wild and go for a nature walk around America’s oldest wildlife refuge. And did we mention that Bioblitz at Lake Merritt is free? All you have to do is RSVP by clicking here! You can check out Nerds for Nature’s recent brainstorm for the event to get a better idea of what the day will look like on their blog. Who in your family will be the Bioblitz superstar?! We hope to see you there!
