Calling all nature enthusiasts!
Are you curious about the world around you and want to become a more engaged naturalist? Look no further than the Naturalist Training program by BioBlitz Club and Keep Coyote Creek Beautiful!
Launched in July 2023, this online presentation series welcomes everyone, regardless of experience, to deepen their understanding and appreciation of the environment. Learn from experts about the fascinating organisms in your backyard and their interconnected ecosystems.
We kicked off the series with an exploration of community science and iNaturalist, and how to get the most out of this handy app and website.
But don't stop there! Our next exciting session features Michael Hawk (@naturesarchive) from Jumpstart Nature, presenting "Nature Interpretation for the Rest of Us" on February 7th, 2024, from 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM PST. Join us live or watch the recording later! Sign up here: http://tinyurl.com/ca4bstrn

We want to hear from you! What topics pique your interest for future presentations? Share your thoughts on the series so far and suggest themes you'd love to explore next.
Together, let's embark on a journey of discovery and become stewards of our amazing natural world!

Gall Week 2021!

Dear gall enthusiasts -
Since there is spider week, Cal Coast week, and taco day, we need to have Gall Week! I thought it would be fun to try and document many galls during one week of fall. I think the first week of October could be good, when there should still be plenty of gall in the Bay Area. Are you in?
I will create an iNat project, and I would also like to do some outreach, to tell more people how awesome galls are.
If anyone is interested, we could plan some outings together. I thought it could be nice exploring new places less covered on iNat, target specific gall species, or look for less observed host plants.
Please let me know what you think, if you like (or dislike) the idea, if you’ve got any ideas for locations, gall species, or host species of interest, or if you’ve got suggestions for the t-shirt design :)
Happy fall!

Meet Your Nature Neighbors!

While sheltering-in-place we can still enjoy nature!
I would like to invite all my local friends to join our new project - Meet Your Nature Neighbors! All you need to do, is make an observation around your home or within walking distance, and share it on our new project -
Each day we will have a challenge - something you need to find that day. But feel free to add any observation you make around your home. Let's see how many species we can find!
