Lake Lagunitas Nature Challenge Bioblitz - Hosted by Marin Municipal Water District and One Tam

Take part in the City Nature Challenge! Seventy cities around the world are vying to prove that their area has the most nature and the most nature-loving residents - and we want the SF Bay Area to win! Join Marin Municipal Water District and One Tam in partnership with California Academy of Sciences for  a celebration of biodiversity in our backyard.  Hone your naturalist skills, learn to use the iNaturalist smartphone app, and join short, family-friendly guided excursions with experts.

We will be taking observations in the field from 9 AM to noon, and then move to a nearby wifi-enabled location to discuss identifications and upload our observations.

No experience necessary, and training and guidance will be provided.   All ages are welcome. Participants under age 18 will need a parent or guardian present, or contact us for an advance consent form.
