Nature lovers, now’s your chance to become a volunteer Citizen Scientist for the City of Dallas Park and Recreation. Join us and other citizen scientists Saturday, June 11 for our first ever BioBlitz. Learn and inventory different species of vegetation and wildlife that live within our parks. Urban Biologist Brett Johnson says they will examine a designated area at William Blair Jr. Park, near the Great Trinity Forest.

“It’s all in an effort to better identify environmentally sensitive areas in Dallas parkland and be proactive in protecting natural habitats,” said Johnson.

Citizen Scientists will be inputting their observations on iNaturalist, a free mobile application designed to map and share observations of biodiversity across the globe. An Urban Wildlife Biologist with the Texas Parks and Wildlife will explain the app and how we plan to use it. There will also be a quick demonstration on how to download it.

Citizen Scientists should wear closed-toe shoes, preferably hiking boots, long sleeves shirts and long pants. Don’t forget to bring insect repellent and drinking water. Registration is required. Click below to register!
