Shoreside Discovery and BioBlitz

10 - 12 pm, and 1 - 3 pm

Join us for unique opportunities and scientific discovery. During our Earth Day celebration, we will identify as many Bay species as possible within our collection area and upload them to iNaturalist, an open-source database used by scientists and policymakers around the world. Other stations include scientific explorations focusing on household hazardous waste, and California’s watersheds. This event is perfect for friends and families to work together to get a snapshot of our waterfront’s biodiversity.
