Events/gatherings coming up this spring around Dallas/Fort Worth! :)

Some fun gatherings and events coming up in DFW!

Sunday, April 23 - 3-6 and then 8 to late (for blacklighting!)

  • BioBlitz/biosurvey at Ladd Natural Area in Duncanville
    https://www.inaturalist.org/observations?place_id=178712&subview=map
    Duncanville City Council has been deciding on what to do with this 42 acres along Ten Mile Creek, so the more evidence we can show that it's a refuge for biodiversity and the naturalists that engage with it, the better! I hope you can come!

Tuesday, April 25 - 9 am to noonish

CANCELLED Friday, April 28 - 8 to late

Saturday, April 29 - 3 - 6 and then 8 to late (for blacklighting!)

Monday, May 15 - 3 - 8 pm

  • Pollinator bioblitz at Canyon Creek Wetlands in Richardson
    https://www.inaturalist.org/observations?place_id=187694&subview=map
    Super cool site with some really active master naturalist activity, but not a lot of insect observations -- we're planning a bioblitz to focus on the pollinators on this date. It's come and go, so stay as long as you'd like!
    parking spot is at Hilton Garden Inn Dallas/Richardson, 1001 W President George Bush Hwy, Richardson, TX 75080

Tuesday, May 16 - 8 PM to late

If there are other bioblitzes or iNatty stuff going on in DFW, please let me know, and I'll update the above list.

If you have any questions or concerns, let me know: sam.kieschnick@tpwd.texas.gov or 214 215 5605

I've been up to the Grand Park in Frisco three times, and it does have potential; I found some great odes the last time I was up there, on Saturday. Looking forward to the bioblitz/mothing there.

Epic! I will come to as many as I can! Any signups or anything or do I just show up?

Publicado por nathanmayflower hace alrededor de 1 año

No sign up -- just show up! :)

Looking forward to seeing folks at some of these, I hope!!!!

I'll try to make the one in Frisco, at least the 8pm start. Hoping to start the day in Hagerman so may not make the earlier time. Will also try to spend at least some time at the one in Richardson. Where should we meet for them?

EDIT: May make the one in Midlothian too.

Hey all -- just got word -- we'll cancel the Friday night mothing event in Midlothian. Threats of hail make mothing no fun. So, stay safe -- and maybe keep an eye out for some moths outside of your places!

As far as I know, Frisco is still on!

Publicado por sambiology hace alrededor de 1 año

I am interested in the Frisco event on Saturday! As long as the weather is OK. Where would we meet/park?

Father in law in the hospital; probably not making this after all.

Publicado por williampaulwhite17 hace alrededor de 1 año

So where is parking and meetup place for Canyon Creek Wetlands?

Publicado por annikaml hace alrededor de 1 año

Ooooooh! Thanks for the reminder, Annika!!! :)
So, the parking spot is at Hilton Garden Inn Dallas/Richardson, 1001 W President George Bush Hwy, Richardson, TX 75080.

Let's keep those fingers crossed for 'reasonable' weather. :)

Publicado por sambiology hace alrededor de 1 año

Also! Added blacklighting on Tuesday evening at the Ladd Land. :)
All of these are weather permitting -- hopefully it won't be pouring on us. :)

Publicado por sambiology hace alrededor de 1 año

Hey! I might be able to make the Richardson one and maybe bring my parents even :)

Publicado por scarletskylight hace alrededor de 1 año

Looks like it's gonna be rainy, should I still gear up and head over?

Publicado por nathanmayflower hace alrededor de 1 año

I was thinking to try to head over after the current storm blows through - if it looks like it will be clear long enough... but I too am wondering if we're on for this evening. I'll check back in half an hour to see what's posted. @nathanmayflower I'm not fair from the area today but it's really coming down here.

Publicado por scarletskylight hace alrededor de 1 año

@nathanmayflower and @scarletskylight Sam is already out there, so he may not be checking iNat. However, I just got a text from him that they are sitting in their cars waiting for it to blow over. I said I'm planning on coming up around 5pm and he said that was perfect. So it's still on.

Publicado por annikaml hace alrededor de 1 año

Perfect, thanks for the update @annikaml! I'll try to make my way over once it clears. I may walk over - if I do, I'll be coming from the south side instead of the parking lot.

Publicado por scarletskylight hace alrededor de 1 año

We did get poured on for a little bit!!! Fortunately, we were able to get a bit of iNatting in before and after the storm. :)
