Volunteer Opportunity: Spring Equinox Self-Guided BioBlitz at the Refuge

Sunday, March 19, 2023 - 8:00am to Saturday, March 25, 2023 - 8:00pm
Environmental Education Center, 1751 Grand Blvd, Alviso, CA

Interested in a volunteer opportunity you can do on your own? Are you looking for an activity you can do safely with your family? Want to find a new way to celebrate the start of Spring?

Join us for a self-guided BioBlitz event in honor of the upcoming Spring Equinox, from Sunday, March 19th to Saturday, March 25th.

The restoration and upkeep of our upland and salt marsh habitats is an ongoing project. We need your help to track and identify the California native plant and animal species that call the refuge home. We also need help observing which non-native or invasive plants have found their way into the area. In short, we are so happy to have you join us and are excited for you to get out on the trail and observe as many species as you can!

As the Mallard Slough Trail is closed around pond A16, we recommend doing your self-guided BioBlitz hike in our Butterfly Garden, on the Marsh View Trail, and on the New Chicago Marsh Trail (boardwalk). There will be signage at the EEC to point you in the right direction!

The information you are helping us to collect makes a difference! As we actively restore our upland habitats, the healthier and more resilient our ecosystems will be, and the more we can reduce water runoff and urban runoff pollution. For information on how you can help keep our watersheds and the Bay clean by preventing urban runoff pollution, visit: http://www.mywatershedwatch.org/.

This program is brought to you by the U.S Fish and Wildlife Service, the San Francisco Bay Wildlife Society (SFBWS), and the Santa Clara Valley Urban Runoff Pollution Prevention Program (SCVURPPP).
