Become a citizen-scientist at the Walker River State Recreation Area on June 8

Join scientists, naturalists and conservation professionals at the Pitchfork Ranch unit of the Walker River State Recreation Area on June 8 for a BioBlitz – a communal citizen-science effort to record as many species within a designated location and time period as possible.

This program is aimed to enlist the public in learning more about the species found in Nevada’s newest State Park. Families, students, and individuals are encouraged to partner with a scientist to survey the environment at the park while generating useful data for science and conservation. All minors must be accompanied by an adult. This BioBlitz will use the app iNaturalist to collect data and assemble an inventory of plants and animals. It is advised to have the iNaturalist app installed on a mobile device prior to arrival.
