Take part in bio-blitz planned for Ohop Valley

March 30, 2014 

The Nisqually Stream Stewards will host a citizen science event Saturday with Nisqually Land Trust and Northwest Trek Wildlife Park.

The organizations are holding the Ohop Valley Mini Bio-Blitz. During the event, volunteers will work with experts to survey several areas of the Ohop Valley for a variety of taxa, including mammal, bird, amphibian, reptile, invertebrate and botany.

This event will take place in the Ohop Valley near Eatonville and will provide a snapshot of the species utilizing this part of the valley before the next phase of waterway restoration activities begins this summer.

To take part, contact Don Perry to sign up for a morning (8 a.m.-noon) or afternoon (noon-4 p.m.) shift. You can reach Perry at perry.don@nisqually-nsn.gov or 360-951-5749, Ext. 2143.
