Lake Merritt bioblitz this Sunday, Feb 23!

By Constance Taylor

It’s almost here!  Come to the lake between 9 am – 3 pm on Sunday, Feb 23 to explore all the different habitats in and near our fair urban slough, and catalog what we find for posterity.

Here’s the schedule of events for the day:

Some other things to know:

We’ll be cataloging our species observations by using iNaturalist, a website with a smartphone app that allows you to upload and identify the critters we’ll be finding.  You can download the app for free at

No smartphone?  No problem!  Bring a digital camera of some sort to catalog your findings and we’ll upload them to iNaturalist at the wrap session from 3:30 to 4:30 at the Oakland Museum of California.

For more information about the event, you can check out the East Bay Express article about the blitz here or go to the event homepage on the iNaturalist website here.

See you at the blitz!
