Event description

Description

Welcome to the Overfelt Park BioBlitz! Together we will visit Overfelt Park and learn about the park's plants and animals. A BioBlitz is an event where nature lovers and experts come together to explore an area, and document observations of all living things in a short period of time: plants, bugs, reptiles, mammals, and birds. It is a family oriented event - everyone over the age of 4 is welcome, and no previous experience is needed.

We will use the iNaturalist smart phone app to record our observations (birders may use eBird). We recommend downloading the app to your iPhone or Android in advance and creating a free account. You can even practice using it in your backyard or local park. This way you'll be ready to start recording observations as soon as you arrive! No worry, however - the use of smat phones is optional. Please join us with or without a smatphone!

This is event is hosted by Santa Clara Valley Audubon Society
