Trione-Annadel Burn Bioblitz

  • Trione-Annadel State Park 6201 Channel Drive Santa Rosa, CA, 95409 United States (map)

Use your smartphone to monitor nature's recovery after the October 2017 Nuns Fire, which burned approximately 60% of Trione-Annadel State Park. Using the iNatrualist app, we will photograph as many living things as we can find in an area that burned. Please be prepared for a moderate hike of up to 4 miles for this event.

Bioblitzes are gatherings of scientists, citizen scientists, land managers, and more, all working together to find and identify as many different species as possible. Bioblitzes not only help land managers build a species list and atlas for their park and provide invaluable data for researchers, they also highlight the incredible biodiversity in these Bay Area oases.

Join California State Park scientist, Bill Miller, as we hike up Warren P. Richardson Trail and Two-Quarry trail  total distance may be dependent on how much we stop and photograph. We might see wildflowers that only bloom after a fire, or have not bloomed here for many years, or are blooming more profusely as a result of the fire.
