Cape Perpetua Marine Reserve BIOBLITZ

July 6 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm

Meet at the Cape Perpetua Visitor Center.

A BioBlitz is an intensive survey of a defined area on a single day with the goal of identifying all the species to be found in that area at one time – it is a snapshot of biodiversity. Come explore Oregon’s coastal waters while helping local scientists survey the species of the region!

There will be a brief introduction on Cape Perpetua Marine Reserve and staff will answer iNaturalist questions at the beginning of the event.

Get started on iNaturalist now! This is a useful tool (for smartphones) which enables any observer of the natural world, of any skill level, to contribute information to a vast national database. This is the method by which participants will contribute to the Bioblitz.
