BioBlitz at Huddart County Park - Saturday SEPTEMBER 29

Hey San Mateo county iNat-ters! Time for another installment in the remarkable coalition between San Mateo County Parks, Sequoia Audubon Society, California Academy of Sciences, California Lichen Society, Yerba BioAdvocacy, California Native Plant Society, and California Center for Natural History!! Talk about ALL TAXA!

We will be BioBlitzing the western side of Huddart County Park. Accessed from Kings Mountain Road, this park has a vast amount of mixed redwood/madrone/tanoak forest, but remarkable pockets of other habitats, too. A lichen and moss paradise, the park also holds some unusual county birds (Pileated Woodpecker and breeding Hermit Thrush), plenty of insects, a few galls, and, well, let's find out what else!

The official blitz runs from 9:00 to noon on site, but the project is open all day. I'll be out and about adding observations through the day. I have walked every inch of every official trail in the selected area of the park, so I am happy to offer advice to interested blitzers.

Thanks to Katherine, Alison, JJ, Drew, Damon, and so many others for pulling together this awesome coalition! Let's see if we can top 1500 observations out there!

That sound like a blast! Unfortunately, I'm already leading a tour that day for the Monterey Bay Birding Festival but I wish you folks an amazing time and hope you break your observations goal!

I hope to be in the Mojave... I missed the advance notice for this one - is there someplace where all the California bioblitzes are posted in one spot?

I'm teaching a class at Cañada de los Osos that time. Would have loved to be there! By the way - I led an insect hike there a few weeks ago and prepared a flier with arthropod species - let me know if you'd like to use it
