Blossoms and Bugs Bioblitz at Potrero Meadows

Saturday, June 1, 11AM to 2PM

It’s that time of the year when the mountain is blooming and buzzing. Join us for a closer look at the flowers and bugs of this special meadow habitat. We will photograph and identify the living things we see using iNaturalist with the goal of contributing new scientific knowledge for the long-term health of the mountain. This Bioblitz will focus on smartphone macro photography and extra tools that will be available to take your observations and photos of small organisms to the next level.

Additionally, the local plant and bee experts will be joining us for the day. Hone your naturalist and photography skills, learn how to use the iNaturalist app, and become our scientific collaborator for the day.

Please note that access to Potrero Meadows requires hiking or biking from a trailhead. Two options are possible: Starting from the Rock Springs Trailhead – 1.5 mile, 266 feet elevation gain one-way or stating from Lake Lagunitas – 3 miles, 1000 feet elevation gain one-way. If motor vehicle transportation is necessary for you, we have limited number of spots available. Please contact Lisette Arellano directly to inquire about those spots.

Free registration via www.onetam.org/calendar is required. Limit of 15 participants. More logistics information will be sent after registration.

No experience necessary. We will teach you everything you need to know to have a fun day in the field. All ages are welcome: adults, high school students, middle school students, and educators. Participants under age 16 will need a parent or guardian present or can submit a permission form in advance. For more details or questions, contact Lisette Arellano, larellano@onetam.org or call 415-426-5257, please use the subject line 2019 Potrero Meadows Bioblitz.
