Summer BioBlitz: Trees and Plants

July 20 @ 10:00 am 11:30 am


Join us to explore the tallest of trees to the smallest of weeds. Learn how to identify different plants at Riverwood by leaves, berries, flowers, and bark! All count towards our ongoing BioBlitz!

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.
