BioBlitz at Garden Bar Preserve

Bear Yuba Land Trust invites students, families, and community groups for the First Annual Community BioBlitz happening on beautiful protected nature preserves on Saturday, May 6th.

Garden Bar Preserve connects a 9,000-acre conserved landscape on both sides of the Bear River. This increases water quality protection and species migration. The intact blue oak woodland provides habitat for a wide range of terrestrial and aquatic species.

What is a BioBlitz?

The goal is to collect data on over 1,000 plants, animals, fungi and other organisms that we share our environment with. Participants are invited to find and identify as many species as possible.

During BYLT’s event, participants will photograph or take notes of all the plants, animals, fungi and other organisms they see. All this data is compiled, uploaded to the iNaturalist database, and becomes a permanent record to help land managers track the health of plant and wildlife habitat over time. Some of the data may even be used to create cool flora and fauna guidebooks!

Come out and explore the natural wonders of our community. No scientific knowledge is needed. A willingness to contribute to the collection of habitat data as you wander through BYLT’s conserved land and appreciate all of nature’s abundance is all you need. We will have scientists on site to assist you, answer questions, and share their knowledge.

Get involved. Get to KNOW YOUR NATURE!

Cost: $5 per person, kids 7 and under are free.

Space is limited. We encourage you to sign up early.
