Second Saturday Hikes

April 9, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Kick off Earth Month by joining a State Parks interpreter for a casual bioblitz during a 2-mile hike through the various habitats of Butano State Park. What is a bioblitz? It’s an event that focuses on finding and identifying as many species as possible in a specific area in a short period of time. Before the hike we will show you how to use the iNaturalist app and share some tips for taking good phone photos. Our goal is to document the biodiversity of an ecosystem that is recovering from fire. Bring drinking water—none is available in the park.

Pre-registration is required at www.santacruzstateparks.as.me. Meet at visitor center.

Hike happens rain or shine. Free event. Vehicle day-use fee is $10. For more information, call (650) 879-2120 or email HMBParksVolunteer@nullparks.ca.gov. Event made possible by Coastside State Parks Association and California State Parks.
