In 2016, the Friends of Tandy Hills Natural Area wrote a grant & received funding to organize & host the largest BioBlitz in Texas. The Tandy Hills BioBlitz focused on documenting all living species at the park over a continuous 36 hour time period. Scientists, Citizen Scientists including volunteers, students & children helped collect data on the flora & fauna of the park by using iNaturalist. The results formed a permanent & valuable snapshot of biological life at Tandy Hills.
John & Bruce will present the results of the Tandy Hills BioBlitz, show the professional video created about the event, & talk about what comes next.
