Home BioBlitz and Naturalist's Potluck

On Sunday Dec 10th at 10am, naturalists are invited to a BioBlitz and potluck at my house (1450 Slater) in the JC neighborhood of Santa Rosa. It is 1/9th of an acre with a large Quercus lobata over the front, several smaller trees, and an old above-ground pool collecting rainwater. Digging, turning stuff over, etc are encouraged within reason. We have kids and an indoor cat, feel free to bring your own small mammals and your favorite naturalists. The goals are to socialize with other naturalists and document our urban wildlife.
Please let me know that you'll come!

What a lovely idea! Tentative yes, will firm up after we hear from my husband’s surgeon (not a big thing, torn rotator cuff) as to the date of surgery. If I can attend, I’ll bring a chair and a dish for sure!

@catchang it would be lovely if you could come! I wish your husband an easy and successful surgery.

@ten_salamanders excellent!

Thanks so much for the invite! I'm leading a BioBlitz that morning in San Jose, so I don't think I'll be able to join. I hope I can come to the next one!

Oh, what an absolutely lovely idea. I'd love to join, but my family and I are already committed elsewhere that morning. I hope good fun is had by all...and high hopes for some cheery amphibian 'hellos.'

Mary Ann and I will be there! Thanks for hosting. I think it would be fun to have name tags with our iNat user names and real names so we can connect people with user names we see all the time on our posts. I'm happy to supply the name tags and pens.

@ lgerstein78 name tags are a good idea. Please do bring some!

@californiarowan hopefully another time.

That sounds epic! Sadly I'll be studying for finals that weekend and won't be in Santa Rosa. Thanks for the invite though!

Sounds fun but I have a conflict that I haven't managed to resolve. If I do, I'll show up. Thanks!

A reminder (for those that can make it) that this is tomorrow morning. I expect 15-20 people, so it should be a thorough bioblitz of our little lot.

I have been remiss in not following up here. We had a wonderful group of naturalists, and while we did more talking than iNatting, we still found a lot of wonderful life in my little yard. Here is what has been uploaded so far: https://www.inaturalist.org/observations?nelat=38.4557749302915&nelng=-122.7142006697085&on=2023-12-10&place_id=any&subview=map&swlat=38.4530769697085&swlng=-122.7168986302915
I'm eager to see what @graysquirrel found, she took lots of samples for microscopy.
I hope to host another get-together in the spring. You are all invited.
