California Biodiversity Day 2020 - Survey #2 for Potential Hosts and Events
From Sept 5, 2020 to Sept 13, 2020, we will be celebrating California Biodiversity Day 2020! This window provides flexibility in the date(s) for hosting an event or multiple events. The purpose of this survey is to gather more information about events that hosts are planning for California Biodiversity Day 2020 and identify any resources that we could help provide so that hosts can successfully accomplish their events. Due to COVID-19 and the uncertainty around public gatherings, we encourage hosts to consider planning virtual events. (It's OK to complete one survey for multiple events that are being hosted by the same entity.)
