Rockin’ Kids Club: #PlantWildflowers fun at Lake Creek Park as we learn to Bioblitz (ages 5-8)
September 26 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm
We’re taking Rockin’ Kids Club outdoors this week to help everyone learn how to Bioblitz!
We’ll learn the basics so kids can help their families and friends participate in the Texas Parks and Wildlife Pollinator Bioblitz Oct. 7 – 23. The Library will be supporting the bioblitz as part of our #PlantWildflowers programming.
A Bioblitz is one kind of Citizen Science activity, where ordinary people help scientists by collecting data. The October TPW Bioblitz will have people of Round Rock looking for pollinators whenever and wherever they enjoy doing it.
For our learning session, we’re meeting at a special time, 2 p.m., because Round Rock ISD students do not have class that day. However, this event is casual, so come when you can, and stay as long as you like, up to 4 p.m.
And remember that we will not be at the Library but at Lake Creek Park. The park is just a few blocks away from the library. It has a variety of habitats, and plenty of parking. NOTE: You may find it easiest to access the park (and parking spaces) by taking Park Lane west from Burnet Street.
This activity is recommended for elementary students and their caring adults.
The park is a natural setting, so plan to make safe choices regarding the creek, and be aware of snakes, mosquitos, and other wildlife that may not welcome your presence.
You do not need a mobile phone to participate, but if you have a mobile phone available, you may enjoy using the kid-friendly version of the iNaturalist app, called Seek. Being ready to take photos may use a lot of battery power, so come well-charged.
Participants can bring home a packet of wildflower seeds to plant a tiny meadow of their own. We’re grateful to Tangled Bank Studios for providing local wildflower seeds for this activity through the #PlantWildflowers grant.
- Please arrive between 2 and 3:30 p.m.
- Younger children may require adult assistance.
