Join the Friends of the Cascade Siskiyou National Monument for its Second Annual Bioblitz!
In June of 2000, the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument was the first of its kind to be set aside solely for the preservation of biodiversity. It is a local treasure, containing an unusually high variety of species in a geographically small area. On November 12, Join fungi experts and trained volunteers who will be leading survey teams to observe and catalogue fungi species on the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument. Our mission will be to discover the immense diversity of fungi living in this unique place!
We invite you to participate as a citizen scientist in this event to help us increase public awareness and appreciation of the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument through increased knowledge about mushrooms in the area. Lunches and snacks will be provided and volunteers will receive a free t-shirt!
Meet at Pinehurst School on Highway 66 at 9:00am to be assigned to a group and to meet your group leader.
Direct further questions to: firstname.lastname@example.org
