WHY WE LOVE iNATURALIST

WHY IS CITIZEN SCIENCE SO IMPORTANT

July 20, 2019

A BIT ABOUT US

Become a citizen scientist and help us document the diversity around us! We explore our local parks through public nature events - BioBlitzes. 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. 

If this sounds like fun, join us!

Bioblitz.club was founded in 2019 by Merav Vonshak. Merav has a PhD from the Tel Aviv University and has completed her postdoctoral studies at Stanford University. Merav has been organizing citizen science events for the past 10 years and she and her volunteers have documented numerous animals and plants in many events.  Bioblitz.Club brings the latest news, updates, special events, and more to our community of avid naturalists in the Bay Area.

We love nature, pride ourselves on being a fun and collaborative environment, and hope you will join us for an event soon.
