Celebrate our first National Citizen Science Day by participating in a Bioblitz at Commons Ford. This will be a fun way to learn about your local biodiversity and discover how you can contribute by reporting your observations. During the event there will be experts on hand from the Travis Audubon Society, Native Plant Society of Texas, Texas Master Naturalists, Native Prairies Association of Texas, Austin Herpetological Society, The Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center and Texas Parks and Wildlife's Texas Nature Trackers Program.
The public is welcome to join us at any point during the day, but the best time to arrive will be between 9 AM and 2 PM. There will be an introduction and expert led walks starting at 9 AM. There will also be a demonstration area where you can meet members of different naturalist groups and learn about what we are documenting at the park. At 1 PM we will hold a discussion on the different habitats of Commons Ford, and highlight some of the notable species that have been documented during the event. The demonstration area will wrap up about 3 PM. The park will be open from 5 AM to 10 PM.
