The Woodlands Township Virtual BioBlitz

Thursday, June 24, 2021

Community Wide Virtual Event

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 21-27, 2021, brings attention to the urgent issue of declining pollinator populations. Created by Pollinator.org, this worldwide 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 weeklong BioBlitz.
