iNaturalist Project Name: 2016 National Parks Bioblitz – Cabrillo: Urban Island Bioblitz
Engaging the public in Citizen Science we look to gain a deeper understanding of the species that call Cabrillo home, as well as, inspire the next generation of stewards to explore and investigate their National Parks. Furthermore, our hope is that this event informs and excites the public of the unique ecosystems and organisms located right in their own backyard.
