First Verde Valley Community BioBlitz
Apr 22 @ 9:27 pm

Friends of the Verde River is pleased to announce that the
very first Verde Valley Community BioBlitz will be held from April 22-May 7 throughout the Verde Valley and along the Verde River.
Amidst the complications of COVID-19, Friends of the Verde River is committed to providing
opportunities for community members of all ages to learn and engage about the Verde River and the many species that live within and around the watershed.
Friends is inviting community members, teachers and other organizations to participate in this 2-week event. BioBlitz participants are invited to go out along the river or anywhere in the Verde River system; Oak Creek, West Clear Creek, etc. and use the iNaturalist app to take photos of
plants, animals, birds, and insects to gather species data for the Verde River. The observations
collected will help Friends of the Verde River’s efforts in documenting native and invasive plants
along the river. You do not need to be a biologist to participate – the BioBlitz is easily accessible for
everyone and is a great way to learn about the species within our community.
Registration is completely FREE and includes instructions to the iNaturalist App, a map of
suggested locations and more information about Friends of the Verde River.
For more information and to register, please visit: verderiver.org/bioblitz
The Verde Valley Community BioBlitz is a community driven 2-week event made possible by the
hard work of many committed partners and sponsors. The event is hosted by Friends of the Verde
River, with generous support from the City of Cottonwood and our partners; the Science Vortex,
STREAM Council, R.A.I.N and Camp Verde Library.

Whiskey Off-Road Mountain Bike Race CANCELLED
Apr 23 all-day

– Organizers of the Whiskey Off-Road mountain bike event have notified City staff that the event has been cancelled for 2021 due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.   Event organizer Todd Sadow, with Epic Rides informed the City of Prescott earlier this week.

In an announcement to their 30,000 followers, here is what Epic Rides said:

With concurrence from our host communities, and in the interest of keeping everyone safe, Epic Rides will not produce the following 2021 events:

Whiskey Off-Road        April 23 – 25        Prescott, AZ

Grand Junction Off-Road    May 14 – 16        Grand Junction, CO

Carson City Off-Road        June 25 – 27        Carson City, NV

This means Epic Rides will go at least 1.75 event cycles before resurfacing.

“We are disappointed, but we fully support Todd’s decision,” said Prescott Mayor Greg Mengarelli.  “Whiskey Off-Road is an iconic event in Prescott each year, and we look forward to its return in 2022.”

Whiskey Off-Road 2020 was also cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  2020 would have been the 17th annual event.  For more information from Epic Rides, go to www.epicrides.com.  For information about other events in Prescott, go to www.visit-prescott.com .
