June Events

Hello Neighborhood Naturalists,
We hope the Wildfire Awareness Month campaign last month with CAZCA has you feeling more informed about and prepared for wildfire. In case you missed it, check out the wildfire awareness blog. For June, in coordination with National Pollinator Month and Pollinator Week (June 21-27), we're taking a look at nocturnal pollinators here in the Sonoran Desert. In addition to this month's EcoQuest, we encourage you to join the Pollinator Week BioBlitz. Pollinator Week is an annual event celebrated internationally in support of pollinator health. This citizen science project is hosted by the North American Pollinator Protection Campaign's (NAPPC) Urban Pollinator Taskforce.


JUNE EVENTS

ECOQUESTIONS with JESS WHITE
Monday, June 14 | 3-4 p.m. MST
In this EcoQuestions session, we hear from Jess White. Jess is a wildlife biologist working on military lands to protect the endangered Sonoran Pronghorn. While she doesn't currently get to work with them for her job, she is deeply passionate about bats! She has experience in mist-netting with AZ Game and Fish and one of her greatest excitements is the day when in-person events resume and she can talk about them with anyone that has ears, including the bats themselves.
