Sunday, June 3rd

Willamette Park Rotary Shelter

Join us from 10am* to 5pm for an action-packed day of biological survey. This is a family-friendly event intended to introduce our community to the importance of citizen science and (re)connect with nature while also having some fun outside! All are welcome to join at any time throughout the day with no previous experience required. Professors, researchers, students, and community members will help each other collect and identify specimens while also engaging with the natural history of the Willamette Valley. The event is a student-led initiative with the support of the OSU Forest Biodiversity Research Network, and Oregon State Arthropod Collection. Check out our Facebook page to receive updates.

*Two bird-banding demonstrations will be offered 7am-10am. Pre-registration required. Please contact Josée at josee.rousseau@oregonstate.edu if interested! 

For any other inquiries, contact Luciana at Lu.Leite.Bio@gmail.com
