'Citizen scientists' invited to ID species at Point Pinole Regional Shoreline

Citizen scientists are invited to help find and identify species at Point Pinole Regional Shoreline as part of a half-day BioBlitz event on Saturday, July 1.

Wholly H2O, California Academy of Sciences and The Watershed Project are taking part in the event that will take place from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the shoreline park at 5551 Giant Highway.

“Bring your camera, sunblock, water to stay hydrated, snacks, your kids, NOT your dogs, and water shoes for oyster counting if you’re inclined to get a little muddy,” an eventbrite.com invitation stated.

Along with counting oysters in their beds, participants will observe and photograph birds, bugs, plants and aquatic life and help perform water quality testing. 

Observations will be added to the project Richmond CA Watershed on iNaturalist.org.

if enough participants sign up, a BioBlitz will also be done on the Wildcat Marsh Loop Trail, just 7 minutes south.

Register for your free tickets. More information will be provided upon registration.
