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!
