Forest to Sea – join Fort Worden State Park and partners for the 2024 BioBlitz!

Help us document the wild at Fort Worden State Park! By uncovering the diverse range of life within the park, we can gain a deeper understanding and appreciation for its ecology.

The event officially begins as soon as the park opens at 6:30 a.m. and ends when the park closes at 9:45 p.m. Bring a camera or smartphone to take pictures of plants, wildlife, and other organisms that live in the park, then upload them to iNaturalist.

Join us at the Kitchen Shelter from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. for an in-person celebration of citizen science and stewardship! Visit informational booths at the shelter with specialists from various biological fields like Port Townsend Marine Science Center, Audubon, Kitsap Peninsula Mycology Society, and more.

Park Rangers and the Friends of Fort Worden will provide guidance on using iNaturalist, park rules, orientation, and current conservation efforts.

It is important to stay on designated trails while visiting the area to ensure safety and protect the environment. By following these guidelines, you are not only protecting yourself and other visitors but also preserving the habitats of countless plants, fungi, and animals.

To ensure you don’t get lost, download a copy of the trail map or pick one up from the park office.

Please note: no live specimens are being collected.
