BioBlitz West Regional Competition

Saturday, September 19, 2020

Calling all master collectors, young and old! We need your help in finding pollinators in our parks. Thanks to the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA) and The Scotts Miracle-Gro Foundation, the Dallas Park and Recreation Department is hosting a BioBlitz in support of the Parks for Pollinators campaign. Like Pokemon Go, we use iNaturalist, an app to take pictures of plants, insects and animals to see what wildlife is in the park and it provide us with more information about pollinators, which are essential to our ecosystem. This information will help us understand how we can better protect pollinators and other important wildlife in our community. Earn the title of Master Collector for your region by racing against the clock to collect the most observations! Winners of each region will get a social media shout out & a chance to invite 5 closest friends and family for a private 45-minute tour of a Dallas hidden gem at Crawford Park, led by master naturalists!
