Cabrillo’s Urban Island Bioblitz

Cabrillo National Monument


On May 21-22, 2016, Cabrillo National Monument provided a unique opportunity for the San Diego community to get involved in citizen science through the 2016 National Parks Centennial Bioblitz. Utilizing the application, iNaturalist, explorers of all ages made their way to the Monument to discover biodiversity in their National Park. In conjunction with the Bioblitz, Cabrillo hosted a Biodiversity Festival where our community partners conducted hands-on science based activities and introduced local research. Our hope is that through these events we can inspire the next generation of stewards by providing a platform of understanding to our natural world. Music by: Nos de Chita (
