Jewel Lake/Wildcat Canyon BioBlitz

Join our friends at WhollyH20 for a fun half day citizen science BioBlitz on the Lower and Upper Packrat Trail along Wildcat Creek in Tilden Park in Kensington, CA. We'll be hiking around Jewel Lake. Get ready to enjoy being a citizen scientist through simple observation and photo documentation.

This event is part of a project to BioBlitz the Wildcat Creek watershed from its headwaters at Lake Anza down to its end point at the Wildcat Marsh and Landfill Loop in Richmond from summer 2017 to Spring 2018. Check out the other upcoming BioBlitzes in this project.

Bring your camera, sunblock, water to stay hydrated, snacks, your kids, and water shoes for doing some water quality monitoring in Wildcat Creek.

We'll be uploading photos to (aka iNat). Feel free to familiarize yourself beforehand. We will also do a short orientation to iNat in the first 15 minutes on BioBlitz day. After the hike, we'll gather at a nearby coffee shop at noon to compare shots and for an iNat load-your-photos party. Our observations will be added to the iNat project "Wildcat Creek Watershed"

Learn more about the project on Wholly H2O's project page for The WaterHood.
