It's time for another BioBlitz!

Colonial Pollinator Week BioBlitz

19 - 25 June - Pollinator Week 2023

Colonial Pollinator Week BioBlitz Logo

We would love it if you would participate in our Pollinator BioBlitz!

We want to take this opportunity to help people realize just how many different kinds of #pollinators there are and generally increase awareness about them and habitat that they require.

There are many pollinators besides the honey bee. Pollinators include #bees, #butterflies, #beetles, #flies, #moths, and more.

If you participate in the #pollinator #BioBlitz, you are welcome to observe pollinators at any site that you visit in the Colonial District - so that's Charles City County, James City County, York County, New Kent County, and the City of #Williamsburg.

Take a photo of the pollinators you find, upload them on #iNaturalist, and you can post them onto Instagram/Facebook/Twitter to share with everyone!.

We’re asking all of the participants to use the hashtag #savethepollinators.

We will be having daily challenges, so keep an eye on our website and our social media so you don't miss any. The winners of these challenges will get free entry into our IN PERSON BioBlitz at York River State Park on 29 July - World Nature Conservation Day!

Are you interested in learning about innovative farming practices and technology?

If so, then come on out to Virginia State University's Farmer Field Day at their research farm on June 14th.

Space is limited so, click here to register soon!

And come say hello to Colonial SWCD staff we'll be there too!

We recently spoke to Wayne Davis and Dave Beals about what it means to them to be directors on the Colonial Soil and Water Conservation District's Board of Directors. Our last video on this topic comes from Pam Mason, who is one of the representatives from York County. If you are curious to learn more about what it is like to be a CSWCD director and why she is happy to be a member of our board, then watch the video below to find out if you might want to consider running for a position on our Board in the general election this November.

The election of Directors for the CSWCD will be held in the general election on November 7, 2023. CSWCD encompasses James City County, Charles City County, York County, New Kent County, and the city of Williamsburg. Candidates for elected directors must reside within the boundary of the city of Williamsburg or one of these counties (including the incorporated towns within the county). Prospective candidates must complete the required forms and file them by 7:00 p.m. on June 20, 2023. If the individual satisfied all filing requirements, their name will appear on the ballot for the November 7, 2023 general election. Learn more on the State Board of Elections Website.
