Parks for Pollinators BioBlitz

In partnership with the National Recreation and Park Association, Keep Grapevine Beautiful is hosting a BioBlitz during the month of September. We will have a kick-off Thursday, September 1 from 6:30 – 8:30 pm at Parr Park. The wrap-up event is Saturday, September 24 from 9:00 – 11:00 am (locations to be determined).

What’s a BioBlitz? The Parks for Pollinators BioBlitz is an event where community members work with park staff to create a snapshot of the variety of wildlife. We use an app called iNaturalist to take pictures of plants, insects, and animals to see what wildlife is present in our parks and green spaces and 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. Find instructions for using the app here.

The person with the most observations on iNaturalist in the month of September will win a $50 gift card to The REC of Grapevine (you must register to compete)!! Sign-up to attend our BioBlitz kick-off here and register for the contest here.
