Pierce County Biodiversity Network
Point Defiance Park Bioblitz
Implementation Through the
Pierce County Biodiversity Alliance (PCBA)
PCBA’s multi-pronged implementation
strategy helps guide county planners
in directing more intense development away from the identified bio-rich lands
and can also guide private and public land conservation purchases or easements.
There are 16 Biodiversity Management Areas within the Network that are connected via corridors. The Pierce County shoreline
is considered a corridor. PCBA's first effort to include the nearshore and tidal waters will be at the Point Defiance Park
Pt. Defiance Park and shoreline are divided into 9 zones that will inventoried. Science Central, where everyone meets (at eats) will be located inside
Pt. Defiance Zoo and Aquarium's Education Center. Join us to see if the species that were predicted to occur are there. Help us find non-native species or
take a late night owl and bat walk. To learn more and sign up:
Take NatureTracker training class if you want to volunteer to enter your teams' data using PDA's.
This is a great opportunity to go out with a team without having any field expertise.
