Have you ever seen the movie Deep Impact? If so, remember how the comet was named after Elijah Wood and the astronomer who rolled his Jeep off the mountain? Well, while there’s no promise a new species will be named after you, there’s a chance you could come across one this weekend at the One Tam Bioblitz. Join the National Park Service and One Tam and try to identify and document every living species you see at Homestead Valley. Hone in on your naturalist skills, learn to use the iNaturalist smartphone app, and contribute valuable data about Mt. Tam's biodiversity. No smartphone? No problem! No experience or special equipment are necessary, just bring your enthusiasm for science and nature. We will be exploring coastal prairie and forested ridges to look for rare species and weeds alike! Volunteers ages 8 and up are welcome. Participants under age 16 will need a parent or guardian present. Meet at Ranch Gate on Panoramic Highway.

When: Saturday, April 29 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
