Sandy River Delta Eco-Blitz, 4/23/16
Crystal Springs Stream Survey
We use the term "Eco-Blitz" instead of "Bio-Blitz" so that each event in the series can be structured flexibly. Some events will focus on engaging the general public, with less concern about the type of data collected. Other events will focus primarily on the data collected, with many scientists involved and a clear structure on how and what to identify.
Each type of eco-blitz has its merit, and can be part of the larger collaboration to build capacity for species data and citizen science. The general nature of the Eco-Blitz series allows other existing blitz and survey events, each using their own apps, to become part of this regional movement.
