The Rockwall County Open Space Alliance, in partnership with the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, will host the first Rockwall County BioBlitz at Harry Myers Park on Saturday, November 4th at 9:30am. Harry Myers Park is located at 815 E. Washington St., Rockwall, TX 75087.
A BioBlitz is a family-friendly event to find and record as many species as possible within a designated area, in this case Harry Myers Park. Sam Kieschnick, a Texas Parks and Wildlife urban biologist will give a presentation on conservation, residents will learn how to use the iNaturalist application, and then everyone will go outside to be a part of creating a public inventory of Rockwall County’s living organisms (wildlife, bugs, plants, birds, fish, etc.).
It’s going to be unique family-friendly fun!
This year, we want to invite you to be a part of #GivingTuesday by contributing to our efforts to protect open space and watersheds in Rockwall County. Over this first year of our non-profit, our board has worked tirelessly to raise both money and awareness of the need to protect our green spaces. We are working now on potential projects within the county that will benefit all residents but we need your help! Please consider donating by clicking on the Donate button on our website. All donations are 100% put toward the funds needed to fund potential projects such as trail route studies, land preservation easements and more. Thank you in advance!
