Celebrate Earth Day from the comfort of your backyard or neighborhood by joining RB's first ever 24 Hour Bioblitz on April 24th!

‘Bio’ means ‘life’ and ‘Blitz’ means ‘to do something quickly and intensively’. Together they make ‘BioBlitz’ – a collaborative race against the clock to discover as many species as possible within a set location over a defined time period. It is a citizen-science effort using the free app iNaturalist that anyone can take part in, and in our case, the location is RB and the date is April 24th! Bioblitzes are a great way for the general public to connect with nature while generating useful data for science and conservation. They are also an excuse for naturalists, scientists, and curious members of the public to enjoy the great outdoors and are a lot of fun! Register and learn how to take part here!

Have questions, want to see some friendly masked faces from a distance, or snag some free native plants? Join our drive through event at the RB Community Park (18448 West Bernardo Drive) from 10am-12pm on Saturday, April 24th to learn more about the Bioblitz and get some free earth day friendly swag while supplies last. We'll be back by the gazebo and have native plants for your yard or patio, climate coloring books for kids, and DIY bird feeder crafting kits.

If you will not be joining the free drive through event on Sat morning, please be sure to read the details on our registration page for how to take part in RB's first Bioblitz, and win a chance at a free native tree, courtesy of Moosa Creek Nursery, Native West, and Kate Sessions Commitment.
