Summer BioBlitz: Birding

July 20 @ 7:30 am 9:00 am

Free

Join us for an early morning walk through Riverwood, as we beat the heat of the afternoon and the bustling traffic of visitors on our trails! The focus will be birds, but we will keep our eyes out for all early morning critters!

With the help of community scientists like you, we’re aiming to grow our knowledge of Riverwood’s plants and animals, and the impact that climate change has on their populations. Our Summer BioBlitz will utilize iNaturalist to gather observations from around our natural areas. Prior to this event, please download the free app, create an account, and join the iNaturalist project.
