Spring BioBlitz Challenge
JOIN the Spring BioBlitz Challenge
We challenge you to capture the biodiversity at the Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens between May 1 and June 19 using the iNaturalist app.
Prize for "Most Observations"
Do you accept the challenge? A prize will be awarded to the individual with the most observations made within the boundaries of the Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens during the Spring BioBlitz (5/1/21 through 6/19/21). Win a Nature-Lover's gift basket chock-full of goodies to help you keep exploring. It’s easy to participate — your iNaturalist observations will automatically be added to the Spring BioBlitz Project if they are made during the challenge event and occur at the Gardens.
