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

Description: Prescott Farmers Market is a year-round market and is now observing winter hours! There is still a variety of local food to enjoy even in the winter months. Customers can find hardy green, potatoes, squash, grass-fed beef, locally raised poultry, baked goods, coffee, and other prepared foods and goods. All markets run by PFM are producer-only farmers markets, meaning every item sold is either grown or produced by the seller here in Arizona. The majority of goods come from within a 30-mile radius of Prescott, though some vendors do travel from other parts of Yavapai County and Maricopa County.
Due to the continued risk associated with COVID-19, PFM has implemented safety measures to help protect the health of customers and vendors, including hand-washing stations and booths spaced to allow for physical distancing. PFM requires its staff and vendors to wear face coverings and requests that customers to do so as well. As always, no pets except service animals are allowed in the market.
