    What’s a BioBlitz? The Parks for Pollinators BioBlitz is an event where community members work with park staff to create a snapshot of the variety of wildlife that can be found in city parks during September. Using an app called iNaturalist, participants take pictures of plants, insects, and animals to see what wildlife is present in the parks in September and provide the community with more information about pollinators, which are essential to our ecosystem. This information will help us understand how we can better protect pollinators and other important wildlife in our community. For the Parks for Pollinators BioBlitz, we utilize the iNaturalist platform. Download the app on a smart device and use it to take pictures during the event. It’s a fun event for the whole family!

The tiles have characters and numbers, and the rules are intriguing. Instructor Melinda Colwell teaches the modernized and westernized version in this 6-week class. NOTE: Each participants will be required to have their own Mah Jongg set (borrow a frend's or buy your own; the Senior Center can also assist in ordering a set for you).
