DARCEE's Friends of Keystone State Park Parks for Pollinators BioBlitz

Join DARCEE's Friends of Keystone State Park and parks throughout the country in a fun challenge to see how many pollinator species can be documented this September. It is easy to participate by joining an event or making observations on your own using the iNaturalist app. With the iNaturalist app, you just take a picture of a pollinator (bee, butterfly, bat, etc.) or pollinator-friendly plant, and the community will help identify the species. You can participate by exploring the nature and wildlife at Keystone State Park. Any observation you make will count during our event.

The Parks for Pollinators at Keystone State Park is coordinated by DARCEE's Friends of Keystone State Park, a nonprofit group dedicated to supporting the park's resources for all. This year's BioBlitz will run from September 25th through 30th 2020. The user who submits the most observations will be eligible to win a prize basket with various items donated from members of the community.

Park and recreation agencies from across the country will be hosting Parks for Pollinators BioBlitz events throughout the month. You can learn more about the Parks for Pollinators initiative and see which agencies are participating by visiting nrpa.org/bioblitz.

The Parks for Pollinators BioBlitz is organized by the National Recreation and Park Association.

While this is an ongoing event from September 25th through 30th, park naturalist Jean Keene will be available at the wildflower fields located across from the visitor center during the times listed to assist users with getting started with iNaturalist and instructions for participating.
