BioBlitz in Peoria
BioBlitz is an event where people take and upload photos of wildlife to learn about pollinators in the area. Thanks to the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA), the city of Peoria is hosting a BioBlitz throughout the month of September in support of the Parks for Pollinators campaign. For residents to participate in the BioBlitz, they can post photos on social media with the hashtags #peoriaazpollinators and #parks4pollinators or use an app called iNaturalist.
Residents can take pictures of plants and insects to see what wildlife is present in a Peoria park on any given day, which provides the city with valuable information about pollinators and how they are essential to the ecosystem, food production and biodiversity. Find more information here.
