Calling Citizen Scientists to Join a BioBlitz

6:11am

You don’t need a Ph.D in science to join the ranks of citizen scientist and help gather valuable data during Heal the Bay’s BioBlitz in the Ballona Wetlands Ecological Reserve this weekend.

The “Blitz the Bay” BioBlitz will record the biodiversity of one of the largest wetland habitats in Los Angeles. Experts will be on hand to help volunteers explore tidepools, observe birds through binoculars, and learn about the plants and animals of these coastal wetlands.

After exploring the saltwater marsh, the BioBlitz will move to the freshwater portion of the wetlands, which is a short trip via car.

Those interested in taking part can RSVP here.

Be sure to download iNaturalist on your smartphone before heading out to the BioBlitz.

Park behind Gordon’s Market at 303 Culver Blvd, in Playa Del Rey. The entrance to the reserve is behind the market in the northeast corner of the gravel parking lot.

Bring water and wear close-toed shoes, a hat, and sunscreen.
