Last year was amazing! With your contribution of time and effort, we made nearly 700 plant observations over the course of our blitz days! These observations represent over 300 taxa, including 42 not represented in collections from the mountain; they are supported by over 200 specimens now curated in the California Academy of Science’s herbarium, by hundreds of records in Calflora and thousands of exquisite photographs. We collected first tinker’s penny (Hypercium anagalloides) in east Marin and the first smooth cat’s ear (Hypochaeris glabra) from Mt. Tamalpais. We owe these accomplishments to you: the team leaders, photographers, plant collectors, and data recorders who made our Saturday Bioblitz events the fun, inspiring, and productive days they were.
We're gearing up for the 2013 field season, with trainings in February and survey dates starting in March! If you'd like to be a citizen scientist on our all-day bioblitz surveys, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
You can also contribute photographs of of wildlife and plants observed in the water district by uploading your observations to this project page in iNaturalist.
Thanks to Andrea Williams from MMWD for the summary of our 2012 accomplishments.
