The BioBlitz@Oxy is a citizen-science event to document the biodiversity of Occidental College. During this one day event, we will identify as many species as possible on the Occidental College campus. These data will provide baseline knowledge about local biodiversity so we can measure how these species respond to future environmental changes.

The goals of this event are:

    • Perform a rapid inventory of the species that are currently found on campus.
    • Contribute to the new campus biodiversity database.
    • Involve the entire campus and surrounding community in citizen science observations of biodiversity.

To identify and document species presence, we will use iNaturalist, a web platform that allows anyone to make observations of the natural world.

Here are the latest iNaturalist observations from Occidental College:
