This is a note to remind citizens of the area to join a team of expert naturalists/scientists to discover the plants and animals of Gibraltar Rock this Saturday, June 13th from 8:30am to 3:00pm.  The “BioBlitz”—a day-long event to document as many species as possible—is hosted by Friends of Scenic Lodi Valley.  We’ll have several experts in plants and wildlife on hand to both identify species and to teach citizens about the interesting diversity of Gibraltar Rock.

For the adventuresome, we plan to provide a chance to visit the unusual leatherleaf bog situated at the base of Gibraltar Rock, thanks to the kind offer of the landowner.  If you wish to join the “bog walk,” you should plan to get your feet wet!  Wear old tennis shoes and long pants that can get wet and muddy….

Meet at the Gibraltar Rock parking lot (ca. 1 mile west of Hwy 113 on Co Hwy V, west of Okee) at 8:30am.  All citizens welcome to participate in part or all of the day-long inventory.  Wear long pants and good shoes, and you may wish to have insect repellent handy.

Snacks will be provided (and a porta-potty will be on site!).  For more information call Charlie Luthin, Gibraltar Rock Team Leader, at 592-4326.
