Event description
Bioblitz at Dragonfly Creek!
Join us for City Nature Challenge at Dragonfly Creek! Help us record and observe creek plants and animals, with an eye for invertabrates.
This bioblitz involves light to medium difficulty on and off-trail hiking, as well as some uneven terrain. Hazards include potential dense vegetation, tripping hazards, and slippery mud (though we will make every effort to avoid this!).
This and all of the other activities that make up City Nature Challenge 2019 at the Presidio are free and open to the public. All ages welcome! Some activities require registration. See the complete list of City Nature Challenge 2019 at the Presidio here >>
What is the City Nature Challenge at the Presidio?
City Nature Challenge is your chance to team up with experienced naturalists from the park to take scientific adventures through some of the Presidio’s wildest places! Help us see and record the hundreds of types of wild plants and animals that still thrive here!
All of the observations recorded during this four-day monitoring event will help San Francisco record the most observations of nature during this four-day period and win the international City Nature Challenge. Last year, San Francisco bested over 60 cities worldwide to win the City Nature Challenge. Join us this year and help us bring another championship home to the Bay!
How will we record our observations?
We'll primarily use the iNaturalist app, a community-powered tool developed by the California Academy of Sciences for citizen scientists to upload and share observations in the field. We’ll also have some tablets available to borrow, if you’d prefer to try out iNaturalist on those. We’re encouraging everyone to team-up, share techniques, and find ways to make observations without electronic devices. Feel free to download the app on a smartphone and create an account to try things out before the event.
What else should I bring?
Dress in long pants, long sleeves, layered clothing, and sturdy close-toed shoes (no shorts or sandals). We also recommend bringing a hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, and a refillable water bottle. Bring rain gear, if it’s raining, and always be prepared to get dirty! Learn more about volunteer field safety in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area here >>
Are there any other 2019 City Nature Challenge events in the Bay Area?
You can find a full listing of activities on the iNaturalist web page. See the Bay Area City Nature Challenge events listings here >>
