Check out Friends of Tandy Hills Natural Area website for details on BioBlitz in 2016!

Happy New Year! In 2016, there are a lot of great projects in the works for Tandy Hills Natural Area. The Friends of Tandy Hills Natural Area (FOTHNA), along with Texas Wesleyan University, City of Fort Worth Park and Recreation Department, and Teaming with Wildlife: True to Texas are working on the first ever Tandy Hills BioBlitz. "The 2016 BioBlitz at Tandy Hills Natural Area will combine cutting edge technology, biology, land conservation and community engagement in a 36-hour, round-the-clock session April 22-23. The BioBlitz – the first event of its kind at Tandy Hills and one of the first such full-scale events in North Texas - will focus on documenting and preserving one of Fort Worth’s most beautiful, valuable and fragile natural treasures - a one-of-a-kind living prairie museum in the midst of an urban East Fort Worth environment. Volunteers will conduct a systematic biological inventory that will serve as a planning tool for ongoing land management efforts." (from Tandy Hills website)

Please visit the FOTHNA website frequently for updates on this exciting week-long endeavor to catalog the diversity of biota at the park.
