Upcoming Tacoma Nature Center at Snake Lake Events

April 27 - April 28


Friday, April 27 – Saturday, April 28 (2:00pm)

Ever wondered just how many living organisms call Point Defiance Park home? We'll find out, at the park's BioBlitz, a survey of all living things in the park on April 27 - April 28.

Volunteers will help out in four-hour shifts during the 24-hour survey, joining small teams guided by expert scientists or naturalists and focusing on certain lifeforms, such as trees or insects.

ALL VOLUNTEER SHIFTS ARE FULL. This is a pre-registration only event.
