You can learn about Flower Mound’s unique biodiversity in two upcoming bioblitz events! A bioblitz is a community effort to record as many species within a designated location and time period as possible. It’s a great way to connect with your environment while also generating useful data for science and conservation.
2. During the bioblitz, post about any uncultivated flora or fauna species you encounter. Make sure to include pictures, descriptions, location, and the date you saw it.
3. Keep checking back on your observation, discuss your findings with other naturalists, and explore species that your neighbors found.
Make sure to only document uncultivated flora and fauna. That includes any insects, wildlife, or plants that naturally exist in the region. Uncultivated invasive species are also welcome documentations. For a full list of Texas invasive species, please visit https://texasinvasives.org/invasives_database/.
