Love Bioblitz. I'll be somewhere at LLELA for sure.

Sam, the Trophy Club Family Camp Out is Nov. 10. At the park meeting this morning we talked about your moth lamps. If you or any of your mothing buds would like to come out, it would be a great experience for the kids. Please let me know if you can line someone up for us. Thanks so much.

Anyone on this thread interested in bringing lamps to Trophy Club Park on Nov. 10? Sam said he can't do it, but I know there are a lot of you that have the skills and equipment. Thanks.

I will see if I can make it to some more of these. I am sure I can work out something.

Thank you for putting together this list. Maybe I should know this, but is there a way to search for local bioblitz's?

FYI — several of us are planning on going to LLELA on Wednesday afternoon after lunch! Let me know if you want to come then! :)

Posted by sambiology about 3 years ago (Flag)

I'll be at LLELA Wednesday after work! Should I bring a black light setup for mothing?

Posted by wildcarrot about 3 years ago (Flag)

@wildcarrot — yeah! Bring your gear! I’ll be at LLELA at around 2 pm, but we’ll really focus on mothing set-up at like 6ish.

FYI -- just got an update -- the bioblitz in LLELA is cancelled due to the rain and storms highly predicted tomorrow. Nonetheless, we did get some great observations on Wednesday evening!

Apologies all -- there is no Rockwall BioBlitz tomorrow... :-/
