project awarded

The Authority contributed funds towards a series of Bioblitz Events hosted by Keep Coyote Creek Beautiful. Coyote Creek is a diverse natural area with multiple types of habitat for varied wildlife. The four BioBlitz events will take place at two locations along the creek, where the public can help document animal and plant species with a simple mobile app, iNaturalist. These events aim to attract diverse participants, including people who may spend little time in nature and can expose more people to the outdoors in a new way.
