NPAT Bioblitz in Northeast Texas

Hi y'all! There's going to be an awesome opportunity to bioblitz and moth one of the northeastern NPAT properties at the end of the month!

NPAT is holding a Bioblitz at Talbot Brothers Prairie on Saturday, June 25. We will be exploring the prairie and bottomland forest for native plants and pollinators! The morning event will be from 8a to noon, with a nocturnal (mothing) survey from ~6p to late evening.

Space is limited to 30 people and registration is required (but we can definitely flex that number 😊). Please message me here on iNat, or email Dr. Aulicky at carly_aulicky@texasprairie.org with any questions! Link to the NPAT website event page here: https://texasprairie.org/celebrate-native-pollinators-with-npat/

Make sure to bring lots of water, sunblock, bug spray, etc. We will have snacks and drinks available! And if you've got mobile mothing stations, bring those as well! There is no electricity or restrooms on the property, but folks are welcome to camp!

A little bit about the property: Fifth generation Texans, David and John Talbot of New Boston sold this 366-acre property in Bowie County to NPAT in 2019. It has ~200 acres of bottomland forest and one of the last examples of unplowed, native prairie in Northeast Texas. There is a pond as well as some wet areas in the bottomland section.

UPDATE 6/22/22
I have a quick update from the NPAT folks: the evening portion of the event is canceled due to extreme heat in that area. So morning is still on with a plan to end ~12p. There will likely be more opportunities later in the year to explore these NPAT properties again!

Shucks! I'll miss out on this one as well. I'll definitely be interested in what's observed though! Document everything. :)

How exciting! Unfortunately, I wont be able to be there in the morning, but if there is any space left for the evening event I would love to bring my moth equipment and look for nocturnal critters.

Sounds fun, but unfortunately looks like work will get in the way for me. Maybe next time!

Thank you, Meghan! I won't be in town for this one, but I look forward to seeing (and helping identify) everyone's observations!

Awesome Meghan thanks for the invite! Not sure if we will be on vacation or not, but I did let the UNT SER students know. Really wish I could see this place!

We will miss those of you who won't make it, but there's sure to be more!

And yes, you can come to only the day or night event if you'd like - you don't have to be there the whole time! :D
