Parks for Pollinators

Park and recreation agencies from across the country will be hosting Parks for Pollinators BioBlitz events throughout the month of September. Learn more about the Parks for Pollinators initiative and see which agencies are participating by visiting

What is a pollinator? A pollinator is an animal or insect that visits flowers to drive nectar, eat pollen, and then carries the pollen grains with them as they move around. We need pollinators to help us grow fruits, vegetables and nuts.  

Did you know we even have our own Pollinator Garden right here in the Town of Erie?

Join our Parks for Pollinators BioBlitz campaign and learn more about protecting pollinators.

How to participate:

- Sign up for iNaturalist
- Download the iNaturalist app on your smartphone
- Explore Erie throughout the month of September and take pictures of whatever is interesting to you, and whatever you think you can safely get a good close-up photograph of.  Any observation you make will count during our event!

Feeling stuck? This video explains how to make an observation and navigate the iNaturalist app. 

Event Dates: September 1 - September 30, 2020

Submit the most photos on our campaign and win a $25 gift card!
