The Woodlands Township BioBlitz

Monday, June 22, 2020

Community-wide Virtual Event

BioBlitz web

The Township is hosting a week-long “bioblitz”
– a community effort to identify as many species as possible during National Pollinator Week. This effort provides an informal, fun opportunity for the public to learn together and share their enthusiasm for nature. And the information collected contributes to a genuine scientific survey. Anyone can participate regardless of age or knowledge level.


National Pollinator Week, June 22-28, 2020
, brings attention to the urgent issue of declining pollinator populations. Created by Pollinator.org, this world wide celebration is also a call to action to save bees, birds, butterflies, bats and beetles. The Woodlands Township is celebrating National Pollinator Week by hosting a week long BioBlitz

Naturalist identifies and keeps track of your observations and shares the data with scientific organizations. Now you are participating in a world-wide citizen-science effort!

Observations made during National Pollinator Week, June 22-28, will be tallied at the end of the week and results will be shared with our community.  You can make as many or as few observations as you like and from any area you wish – backyard, park or forest. However much you participate, you will find that you learn something new, contribute to important scientific efforts including pollinator conservation, and have fun being outdoors.
