Programs that make a positive environmental impact

July 1 - Drop-in Garden Tour
6-8  p.m. Get inspiration and learn about our initiative to support native pollinators.

September - BioBlitz
A BioBlitz is a community science effort to record as many species as possible within a designated location and time period. Volunteer participants use iNaturalist and Seek apps (which are free) to observe and identify living things they see. Observe the natural world in your own backyard - plants, animals, and fungi of any kind! Anyone can participate, but observations must occur within the city of Oakwood.
