Bees, butterflies and bugs are some of the important pollinators that help generate spectacular wildflower displays, produce delicious crops and sustain native plants. They can’t do their part without the plants and the Texas Pollinator BioBlitz is helping bring attention to the critical habitat needs of pollinators across the state during the height of the annual fall Monarch migration.

The Texas Pollinator BioBlitz is a statewide effort to observe and identify as many pollinators as possible from Oct. 5-21. Participants in this virtual treasure hunt will search for pollinators such as bees, butterflies, moths, beetles, birds and other animals and post about them on Facebook, Instagram, or iNaturalist.

People of all ages and experience levels can participate and the only tools needed are a camera or smartphone and access to the Internet. Anyone wishing to participate in the challenge can register for free on the Texas Pollinator BioBlitz page: www.tpwd.texas.gov/pollinators. The partners supporting this event include Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, National Butterfly Center, Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, National Wildlife Federation, and US Fish and Wildlife Service.
