October gatherings in/around DFW!

Just wanted to toss up a tiny journal post about some of the upcoming gatherings/bioblitzes around DFW. I don't have all of the details on these (yet), but as I get them, I'll update this journal post!

October 8: black-lighting at LLELA in Lewisville
October 15: black-lighting at Harry Myers Park, Rockwall (details below)
October 29: bioblitz at Coyote Loop Trail in Burleson

Mark your calendars! :)

Mike is having a thing at Hidden Springs Preserve on the weekend of the 8th. I'll be at the others. =)

I might be available for the 29th bioblitz, maybe LLELA.

I think I can make the LLELA event on 10/8.

Can you give me details or tell me where to find the LLELA event? It doesn't look like it's on their calendar.

Definitely interested in the LLELA blacklight event - I just got my first UV flashlight today! Like @vicki76, I'm not seeing an official event posted on their website yet, but I'll keep checking. Thanks for the heads up!

I will definitely be at the black-lighting in Rockwall! Unfortunately I will not be able to make the other events.

Yay! Mothing! I will be at the Rockwall event. What time?

Rockwall! So, this Saturday, the blacklighting will be at Harry Myers Park -- it's a really big park that has a lot of recreational stuff, but there's a spot where they've done some grassland restoration. That's close to where we'll black-light.

Here's the specific spot:

It'll be from 7 PM until late-ish. There is a little guided nature walk that I'll lead for a few folks (only 3 have registered), but we'll have some black-lighting stations set up -- I'll bring all of my gear. If you're able to bring yours, cool! :)

Is that where we'd meet for the nature walk? We've got a small family event Saturday afternoonb ut I may be free by then. Won't know until time of though

I was looking forward to blacklighting tonight, but I'm stuck at home with the flu instead. See lots of cool stuff for me.

This Saturday is the day-time bioblitz in Burleson!

https://www.burlesontx.com/Calendar.aspx?EID=19800&month=10&year=2022&day=29&calType=0
Location:
504 Jennifer Dr
Burleson, TX 76028

The official time is from 10 - noon, but I'm planning on getting out there at around 9, staying until noon, getting some lunch nearby, then bioblitzing more in the afternoon. :)

Publicado por sambiology hace 3 meses (Marca)

I’ll try to make it. I’ll be clearing out some invasive species along a public greenway in Benbrook early in the morning (with the city’s permission). If someone wants to help, I’ll have more time to make this Bioblitz in Burleson. 😉 😆

Or maybe I should just wait until later in the afternoon for clearing the invasives. 🤔

It looks like there will be zero parking? The trailhead is just by some houses in a neighborhood. Does the park down the way have any parking
?

Publicado por k8thegr8 hace 3 meses (Marca)

Ooops -- I forgot to mention that! Parking is at the nearby school (Clinkscale elementary), or roadside depending on how many folks show up. In the afternoon, I'll just be doing roadside parking. :)

@sambiology Do you need some standing cypress seeds for the wildflower area?

Publicado por observerjosh hace 3 meses (Marca)

HECK YES!!! Please please please bring those, Josh! That would be awesome.

Publicado por sambiology hace 3 meses (Marca)

@observerjosh Hey! I think I saw your FB comment too. Just seconding Sam here, but yes please do bring standing cypress seeds!! Looking forward to Saturday! -Katelyn Reeves
