Discover our Pollinators 


Calling all citizen scientists! To honor the birds, bees, beetles, and butterflies that keep the park healthy and vibrant, we are taking time to learn as much as possible about these species and their habitats. 

With support from our sponsor, Eataly, we are hosting our first ever Pollinator Week BioBlitz. A BioBlitz is an ecological survey done over a short period of time where participants of all ages can record all of the species living in a specific place––in this case, our park!

You don’t have to be an actual scientist to collect information that will help us protect the park’s pollinators, all you need is the free iNaturalist app to make observations of what you see in the park. The data collected will help us make important decisions, such as where to place new bee homes or what kind of native plants we should plant to serve as food sources. 

Become a citizen scientist and help us learn more about the pollinators that call our park home.
