Cape Perpetua Marine Reserve BIOBLITZ
July 6, 2019 @ 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.
