MicroBioblitz at PLACE

  • PLACE for Sustainable Living 1121 64th St Oakland, CA, 94608 United States

Tardigrades, Diatoms and Nematodes oh my! We'll use microscopes and smartphone magnifying lenses to explore the wonderments of the microscopic world at PLACE for sustainable living in Oakland.

Have you ever wondered about all of the small organisms that are around you all the time? Finally... you'll have a chance to see them! We will have microscopes, macro lenses for cell phones, and plenty of cool niches at PLACE to look for organisms including water catchment systems, composts, a garden, etc.

Expert microscopists will show you how to  use microscopes if you need help. If you have your own microscope and want to learn how to use it, bring it along! 

We will be attempting to catalog the organisms into the iNaturalist.org platform, so bring your smartphone or digital camera! Please download the FREE iNaturalist app on your smartphone before the blitz. Look for the app in Google Play or the App Store on your smartphone. 

We have limited space, so please get your FREE ticket for this event here: http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/2488933
