Event description

Description

Join a Government Canyon Ranger for a tech-savvy BioBlitz around The Natural Area. Participants will learn how to use the iNaturalist app during orientation then test their skills in the field, taking photos and marking GPS locations of species (particularly pollinators) with the iNaturalist app. No experience is required!

Who is Invited

Open to ages 13 and over; minors must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. No pets please.

Registration & Fees

Reservations required for each participant. Sorry, no group registrations. Natural Area entry fees apply; stop at the Entrance Fee Booth to self-pay/register.

When & Where to Meet

Arrive at 8:15 as the iNaturalist app orientation starts promptly at 8:30AM. Meet in the Exhibit Gallery next to the Visitor Center. Following the orientation, there will be a two-hour hike. Plan ahead, as the Natural Area often experiences heavy visitation and there may be wait time at the fee booth.

What to Wear & Bring

Dress appropriately, sunscreen and hat recommended, wear sturdy footwear for hiking over rough terrain; bring two liters of water and a snack. Please download the iNaturalist app on your iPhone or Android device prior to your arrival.

Requirements

Group size is limited to the first 20 adults that register. No pets please. Minors must be accompanied by a legal guardian. To reduce human impact on the Natural Area, please follow the Leave No Trace principles of outdoor ethics.
