Parks for Pollinators BioBlitz at Smith Creek Park Preserve
Saturday, September 16, 2023
Thanks to the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA) and The Scotts Miracle-Gro Foundation, New Hanover County Parks and Gardens is hosting a BioBlitz Saturday, September, 16th at 9:00 AM in support of the Parks for Pollinators campaign. We will give an introduction on how to use iNaturalist and best practices for photographing!
What’s a BioBlitz? The Parks for Pollinators BioBlitz is an event where community members work with park staff to create a snapshot of the variety of wildlife that can be found in Smith Creek Park. We use an app called iNaturalist to take pictures of plants, insects, and animals to see what wildlife is present in the park on this day and provide us with more information about pollinators, which are essential to our ecosystem. This information will help us understand how we can better protect pollinators and other important wildlife in our community.
