Texas Wesleyan collaboration receives award to conduct BioBlitz

Fall 2014 Conservation Biology Students at Tandy Hills Prairie while censusing White Rosinweed (Silphium albiflorum)

Tandy Hills Natural Area will be the focus of a BioBlitz on April 23, 2016.

The BioBlitz is funded by a grant from the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department and the Texas License Plate Conservation Program.

The grant was awarded to Texas Wesleyan, together with the Friends of Tandy Hills Natural Area and Teaming with Wildlife: True to Texas, to conduct an intensive inventory of biological diversity in Tandy Hills Natural Area (THNA). 

The inventory will be conducted by volunteers supported by local, state and national experts. During the BioBlitz on April 23, teams of volunteers and experts will geo-reference the occurrence of local plants and animals. 

Tandy Hills Natural Area is a remnant prairie representing the eastern extent of the Cross Timbers and Prairies ecoregion of Texas.  Harboring an exceptional variety of North Central Texas flora and fauna, THNA was obtained by the City of Fort Worth in the 1960s to conserve the area’s unique biological diversity and provide multiple use options for the general public. 

Join us in April! For more information on how, contact Bruce Benz.
