October 4-6 Bioblitz at Timberlake Biological Field Station

UPDATE:



The spring 2019 bioblitz at Timberlake was tons of fun. Between May 17-20, 18 observers made 5,379 observations of 1,103 species! https://www.inaturalist.org/observations?d1=2019-05-17&d2=2019-05-20&place_id=118103

Several folks attending the spring bioblitz asked for a fall get-together, so we have one scheduled for October 4-6. All the details are here:

I can come down Friday evening after lectures are done, and then head back up to Dallas Sunday evening. That means two nights of mothing for me! :-)

Also tagging @melissa_duron and @k8thegr8

I am already packing! Looking forward to it. Was just fixing to register for the Native Plant Society Fall Symposium in Galvestion but had rather meet up with my iNat buddies!

Can I reserve a place to sleep again?

Been wishing I could return for another visit... Awesome place...

As luck would have it, I'm leading an interpretive walk that Saturday. :( I'll get out there eventually....

Publicado por kimberlietx hace casi 5 años

@connlindajo I'm equally excited about getting together with the crazy iNatters.

Publicado por annikaml hace casi 5 años

I'll put it on my calendar, I really want to come back out! May be tough with work and school, but I'm going to try! @eminoid

Publicado por wildcarrot hace casi 5 años

And @mikef451, it's safe to come. I have my own Outback now, so I don't need to try to harass you into selling yours to me. :-)

Publicado por annikaml hace casi 5 años

Good to know @annikaml! I plan on being there with my Outback. I've never been so pleased with the performance of a vehicle as I was driving it all over the place while there. Had a great time there in spring! Know the lay of the land better now. Can't wait! Have frozen DNA will travel.

Publicado por mikef451 hace casi 5 años

I will plan to do my best to get there Friday night. And @kimberlietx there are lots of other folks that can do interpretive walks but chance to get out here doesn't come along too often and so worth it.

@anewman
Please arrange a swap with someone for your walk duties that day @kimberlietx. I can bring my bedstraw pillow to show you.

Publicado por connlindajo hace casi 5 años

On my calendar...and while everybody is looking at the ground for plants, bugs, etc., don't forget to keep an eye to the sky since this is getting close to the peak of hawk migration in CenTex!

Publicado por gcwarbler hace casi 5 años

@brentano @connlindajo I would love to swap out, but I've been booked to do this for 10 months. :(

Publicado por kimberlietx hace casi 5 años

Thanks for the Timber invite, Inatters. I'll make it there someday. My dear friends are getting married that Saturday. Have fun.

I'm leading a field trip for the new class of Heart of Texas Master Naturalists that Saturday, but perhaps for Sunday...

Publicado por bosqueaaron hace casi 5 años

Thanks for the tag. I'll have to see if we can participate.

Tentatively out of town that weekend, but I should know more as the date approaches.

Ooooo! I hope to come to this, but I've got something going on Friday, so perhaps I can make it after that.

So it's a tentative yep from me! :)

A maybe from me! Fingers crossed I can make it happen!

Publicado por nanofishology hace más de 4 años

@tadamcochran Tagging you again.

Publicado por annikaml hace más de 4 años

I'm a definitely maybe! I've put it on my calendar. It'll be a last minute decision.

Publicado por tadamcochran hace más de 4 años

I'll see if I can make it!

Publicado por k8thegr8 hace más de 4 años

I'll definitely put it on my calendar and see if I can make it.

Just letting folks know that the Timberlake bioblitz is still on for next weekend. I was hoping we'd have gotten some fall rains by now, so it may be a bit more desolate and brown than it was this spring. I haven't been out there since then.

Publicado por pfau_tarleton hace más de 4 años

Y'all have fun. We are planning a trip way west and one will be enough for us.

Publicado por alflinn329 hace más de 4 años

It'll be great fun! Looking forward to it!

Publicado por mikef451 hace más de 4 años

It can't be any drier and crunchier there than it is here in Lee County!

Publicado por connlindajo hace más de 4 años

I'll be there! And will bring some pitfall traps again :)

Publicado por wildcarrot hace más de 4 años

I just got the day off so I'll be there! I haven't camped in decades so this will be an adventure!

Publicado por k8thegr8 hace más de 4 años

Shucks. I'm not able to make it... :(

I know ya'll will still have a blast! Looking forward to seeing all of the observations roll in!

Publicado por sambiology hace más de 4 años

Planning to make a day trip of it on Saturday!

Publicado por nanofishology hace más de 4 años

My wife signed me up to visit the in-laws, so I won't be able to make it.

Publicado por bosqueaaron hace más de 4 años

As long as nothing comes up, I should be able to make it up there on Saturday.

Publicado por rymcdaniel hace más de 4 años

For folks coming Friday, please arrive about 4 pm or after. I'm eager to get back out there!

Publicado por pfau_tarleton hace más de 4 años

@sambiology and @bosqueaaron Sorry you are going to miss seeing me!

Publicado por connlindajo hace más de 4 años

There will be a baked potato and salad bar Saturday (either lunch or supper, not sure which). I'll try to bring enough for the folks that have said here that they're attending. I'm assuming that the river bed will be dry enough to be accessible this time. For those wanting to explore that habitat, maybe bring shoes or boots that you don't mind getting a little wet or muddy.

Publicado por pfau_tarleton hace más de 4 años

Thanks Dr. Pfau! Sounds great. See you Friday afternoon.

Publicado por mikef451 hace más de 4 años

See you there.

Publicado por connlindajo hace más de 4 años

Unfortunately, looks like I'm going to miss out on this one.

I just went through and made sure all the caterpillars were annotated as larvae...then filtered our observations by that annotation. The results? When @k8thegr8 attends a bioblitz, a dazzling array of caterpillars will be revealed! 24 species and counting!
