Kellogg Creek Bioblitz

May 18, 2024   •   9am to 1pm
with surveys taking place between 10am–Noon
in several locations around the Kellogg Impoundment

Join fellow NWAEP-member Andy Lara and other naturalists on May 18th for the Kellogg Creek Bioblitz!

Help the North Clackamas Watershed Council document the plants, birds, insects, and other wildlife that are currently present in and around the soon-to-be-restored Kellogg Creek!

In case you're wondering, a Bioblitz is a community science survey where people come together to document as many species as possible at a specific location (or sometimes a few locations) within the same time period. It's also an awesome opportunity to get outside, enjoy some beautiful (and often-overlooked) natural areas, and help bring about a better, healthier habitat for both wildlife and humans to enjoy!

Volunteers will start the morning at Milwaukie Presbyterian Church before separating into small groups to survey different locations around the Kellogg Creek Impoundment — each group will be dedicated to documenting a certain category of observations (plants, tracks, birds, ect.) using the free iNaturalist app. After conducting their surveys, volunteers will reconvene at the church to enjoy some lunch and celebrate a job well done!

The Bioblitz is open to everyone! You don’t need to be an expert naturalist or have experience with iNaturalist to participate — local experts will help with identification and data submission.

Speaking of Volunteers and Local Experts...
While the Council has volunteers to lead groups focused on bird ID, plant ID, freshwater mussels, wildlife tracking, and accessible bird ID, they are hoping to find additional experts to lead groups on macroinvertebrates and amphibians. They'd also love to find Spanish-speaking volunteers to help lead groups in Spanish.

If you could be such a volunteer, please email Peyton at
