Bioblitz to Celebrate Earth Day
9:30am until 11:30pm
Become a citizen scientist, wildlife and lands photographer, and help us document the diversity in our Open Space Preserves!
Join Fairfax Parks and Recreation in collaboration with Fairfax Open Space Committee (FOSC) for our first Bioblitz to celebrate Earth Day.
A BioBlitz is an event where a group of people tries to document as many species as possible in a specific time frame.
It's a great way to get to know a place, local animals and plants, and collect real scientific data.
This is an in-person event, adapted to COVID regulations, with social distancing, masks at all times, touchless sign up, and no equipment sharing.
We will walk in very small groups, explore the park, and document all our observations using the free smartphone app iNaturalist.
We will also be learning tips for taking photos in the great out of doors!
Space is limited so make your reservations soon!
