Located along the Russian River, Riverfront Regional Park is just minutes west of downtown Windsor and surrounded by classic Wine Country scenery. The park features two beautiful lakes for fishing, kayaking, canoeing and stand-up paddling.
A bioblitz is an intensive one-day study of biodiversity in a specific location, bringing scientists and volunteer citizen-scientists together. Together, we’ll look for snails, birds, mammals, frogs, butterflies, other insects, spiders, trees, worms, flowers, and everything else we can find!
Our bioblitzes are open to anyone and are family-friendly. Just bring your smartphone with the iNaturalist app, your curiosity, and your powers of observation to help catalog the natural wonders of our parks and open spaces.
Encouraging your students to participate in this Riverfront Regional Park Bioblitz and/or other bioblitzes with their families and friends is a great way to help them connect to your classroom units on ecosystems, biodiversity, and conservation. Or, round up some chaperons and bring your entire class on a bioblitz field trip.
