Snapshot Cal Coast 2018!

Hi everyone!

You’re tagged in this journal post because you’re one of the top iNaturalist observers along the California coast! Thanks for contributing your finds! You are all key to making iNaturalist go!

Alison & I wanted to let you all know that the third annual Snapshot Cal Coast is happening June 13 – June 20! This is an ongoing statewide effort to document California coastal biodiversity to better understand changes in species ranges and to get a sense of what species occur in specific coastal sites. Snapshot Cal Coast is organized by Citizen Science at the California Academy of Sciences in partnership with the California Marine Protected Area Collaborative Network and the California Ocean Protection Council.

We’re interested in species found in the rocky intertidal, sandy beaches, dunes, docks, estuaries, coastal scrub – anything along the coast from Del Norte to San Diego! Even though we are mostly focused on marine animals, we will get observations of all taxa from all coastal habitats, including birds, plants, reptiles, insects, and other terrestrial things!

We hope you will have a chance to head out to the coast June 13th- 20th. Thanks to many of you, last year for Snapshot Cal Coast 2017 almost 700 people made close to 14000 observations of over 1300 species!

We are hoping you can help again this year by making and sharing your observations along the California Coast. Any observations made along the coast – will be automatically added to our Snapshot Cal Coast 2018 project. There are also quite a few events happening in support of Snapshot Cal Coast, click here to find out more information and find an event near you.

If you have any questions feel free to post them in the comments or contact either one of us.

Thanks all!
