Park Splash

Community / Parks


While wildlife surveys are conducted all year at Jones Park, Bio-Blitz offers the public an opportunity to participate in real biological surveys. Participating team members search for, identify, and document plant and animal species in the park.  

These findings are added to Jesse H. Jones Park & Nature Center’s list of plant and animal species that inhabit the park. The data is then shared through various citizen science programs including eBird, iNaturalist, Texas Invaders, and others.
