Clark County Wetlands Park held its annual Bioblitz on Monday, April 15th. The family friendly event allowed participants to become naturalists for the day.
They learn about animals and plants and collect data by visiting various field stations set up within the park. Park staff instructed how to use the iNaturalist app if they were interested. As always, it was a fun and exciting day for children.

The Las Vegas valley offers an abundance of beautiful places for people to see many species of birds and enjoy being out in nature. From large national conservation areas down to small municipal parks, wildlife can be found everywhere.

On Saturday, March 9, 17 intrepid RRAS members climbed aboard the Island Packers boat “Vanguard” for a voyage to find the Island Jay and near shore pelagic birds in the Santa Barbara channel and Santa Cruz Island. The trip began by heading out of Channel Islands Harbor, Port Hueneme, CA, into the channel and over the Hueneme canyon. Weather and sea conditions in the Santa Barbara channel during the Spring can be at times a challenge, but we were especially fortunate this day, escaping the previous days gale force winds and the following days approaching winter storm. Saturday’s voyage provided the perfect weather window and, the birds and mammals responded!
