 Brief course description

The UC Hopland Research and Extension Center will be hosting it's 2nd annual Bioblitz on April 7th and 8th, come join us and bring the family!

HREC is a beautiful 5,300-acre site with oak woodlands, rangeland, grassland, chaparral, riparian environments and pockets of mixed conifer forests. The goal of the bioblitz is to find, identify and record on iNaturalist as many plant and animal species as possible across the weekend. During this time we will have a variety of talks and opportunities for you to get outside to discover all the species that we share our site with! 

This event has something for all ages, some talks might be of more interest to certain age groups - take a look at the description for each talk to understand which ones might be most appropriate to you and your group...
