  • Pollinator Posse - June 22, 2024
    Come to the Brundrett Conservation Education Building in the Pineywoods Native Plant Center at 2900 Raguet Street in Nacogdoches beginning at 9 a.m. to learn about the different animal pollinators in East Texas that play a critical role in healthy ecosystems and agriculture. Become a citizen scientist by learning how to use the iNaturalist app or Seek app to identify and post pollinators that we find in the gardens at the Pineywoods Native Plant Center. This event is being held during National Pollinator Week (June 17-23, 2024), an annual celebration in support of pollinator health.
