Please join us for the 2nd Annual Yerba Buena Island Bioblitz!  Come explore Yerba Buena Island and help collect data on its living species using iNaturalist. This will be a great way to learn about the island's biodiversity and become a confident naturalist of the 21st century!  Excellent local naturalists will lead you around Yerba Buena Island to observe and identify the flora, fauna and fungi, a learning opportunity any environmentalist will not want to miss!  The event is free but pre-registration is requested.
