SU91.5 BioBlitz Scavenger Hunt
Time - 11:30 am - 1:00 pm
Trip Leader(s): John Griffith & Karlee Jewell
Want to be a part of a scientific scavenger hunt? The data you collect while playing this edu-taining game will help scientists save wildlife. How does it work? Come learn from a group of young citizen scientists. Members of the California Conservation Corps and Watershed Stewards Program will train you to collect information about the native and wild residents at the Arcata Marsh using the iNaturalist app. All iNaturalist observations will automatically be uploaded to the California Academy of Sciences and National Geographic databases. The team that discovers the most species will win a prize, but all contestants will leave this BioBlitz event as official citizen scientists! If possible please bring a smart device with the iNaturalist app already downloaded for your team or come and use ours. Each team will have 3 to 5 members with an assigned Corps member leader. This game is appropriate for all ages, and we encourage families to come be a BioBlitz Scavenger Hunt Team.
