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.
Red Rock Audubon members volunteered at the event. Bob and Jeanne Andrew were stationed at the bridge and helped people identify birds and taught them how to use binoculars. Pam West and Nancy Chang enjoyed their stint involving native animals. They were on hand sanitizer duty and helped children safely handle snakes and a desert tortoise that were brought in by a professional dealer. Doug Chang stopped by to show his support.
