Kellogg Creek Bioblitz

Start Date
End Date

Help document the plants, birds, insects, and other wildlife that are currently present in and around the soon to be restored Kellogg Creek!

The Kellogg Creek Bioblitz is an important part of the ongoing efforts to monitor conditions in the natural areas surrounding the Kellogg Creek Impoundment before the Kellogg Creek Restoration and Community Enhancement Project goes to construction in 2026-27. Right now, we want to collect as much data as we can about what plants and animals are currently using this space, and you can help!

The Bioblitz is also an awesome opportunity to get outside and enjoy some beautiful (and often-overlooked) natural areas near downtown Milwaukie. Even though we know that the habitat in the Kellogg Impoundment is pretty degraded, it’s still being used by lots of birds and other wildlife, as well as plenty of native and invasive plant species. With the Kellogg Creek Restoration and Community Enhancement Project, we aim to make these natural areas into better, healthier habitat for wildlife and humans to enjoy. After the surveys we will celebrate this project, share updates and answer questions, and enjoy a free lunch together!

The Bioblitz is open to everyone. You don’t need to be an expert naturalist or have experience with iNaturalist to participate – we have local experts that will lead your group to help with identification and data submission.
