Bioblitzes are gatherings of scientists, citizen scientists, land managers, and more, all working together to find and identify as many different species as possible. Bioblitzes not only help land managers build a species list and atlas for their park and provide invaluable data for researchers, they also highlight the incredible biodiversity in these Bay Area oases. People of all ages and skill levels are welcome!
The Green Connections are routes designed by an innovative and thoughtful team to provide habitat corridors and healthy, safe streets for walking and biking. Route one, designed with Monarch butterflies in mind, runs from the Embarcadero and Filbert Streets to Lyon and Greenwich, passing by Coit Tower, Washington Square Park and Fort Mason on the way.
Encouraging your students to participate in this Arbor Day Green Connection 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.
