Citizen Science Project: Snapshot Cal Coast BioBlitz

2022/06/21 @ 10:30 am - 1:30 pm PDT

Help document California’s incredible coastal biodiversity and take part in this year’s Snapshot Cal Coast with a BioBlitz! Library staff will teach you how to use iNaturalist to make observations of the plants and animals you see at the beach.

Snapshot Cal Coast is an annual California statewide community science effort that encourages people to make and share observations of plants, animals, and seaweeds along the California coast using the iNaturalist app. Led by the California Academy of Sciences with support from the California Ocean Protection Council, the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, and the MPA (Marine Protected Area) Collaborative Network, and an array of other partners, we are creating a valuable snapshot in time of where species are located along our coast.

Make sure to download the free iNaturalist app and bring your device to participate! Look for the Library’s green pop-up near the main lifeguard tower. We will have specimens from the San Diego Natural History Museum for folks to view!
