Second Annual Greater Austin EcoBlitz at YMCA Camp Cypress

YMCA Camp Cypress

On Saturday May 13th, the YMCA of Austin is hosting the second annual Greater Austin EcoBlitz at YMCA Camp Cypress!

Guided hikes and kid-friendly activity booths will begin at 9:00am and end at 12:30pm. Participants are then invited to stay for a debrief and picnic lunch. Please dress comfortably, with closed-toe shoes. This is a rain or shine event, so please dress accordingly!

The data collected from the EcoBlitz will teach us more about the native organisms at Camp Cypress, as well as provide an opportunity for “Citizen Science”. Kids and adults will be led by nature experts and scientists around the property, using a smartphone app called iNaturalist, to identify species.

Camp Cypress is located 15 miles south of downtown Austin, just to the west of I-35.
