NTMN January Chapter Meeting – Birding as a Team Sport
Wednesday, January 4, 2023 | 7pm-830pm (social/camera roll begins at 630pm)
Join us for our January 2023 Chapter Meeting as our speaker, Shelly Plante, will talk about the Great Texas Birding Classic and Texas Pollinator BioBlitz. Texas Master Naturalists have been great participants in both of these events over the years, so come learn how you can take part in the fun, too!
The 27th Annual Birding Classic is this spring and there is still plenty of time to get your team together and participate. Last year, three TMN chapters even won project funding through the event, so it can be a great win-win for your chapter!
While not a competition in the traditional sense, the annual fall Texas Pollinator BioBlitz gives you another chance to participate in finding and iNatting data on some of our favorite critters: pollinators! This event takes place through iNaturalist, daily challenges, weekly emails, a Facebook event, plus local events, so there are plenty of ways to take part. Choose your own adventure!
