Happy 50th Birthday, #WoodsyOwl!

Today is my 50th birthday! For 50 years, I have been the nation’s original and official environmental icon. On this special day, please think about the many ways you can Give a Hoot, Don't Pollute and Lend a Hand, Care for the Land. You can take small steps to reduce pollution, reduce your carbon footprint, and take care of the land around you to make the environment a better place for generations to come!

It's ON! Join the #PollinatorWeek #Bioblitz! #FSNatureWatch #Pollinator

The #PollinatorWeek Bioblitz on iNaturalist starts tomorrow! Join this community science project to help collect data on the distribution of pollinators across the United States, Canada, and Mexico. This project is easy to join and consists of taking pictures of pollinators and the flowers they are visiting and uploading them to iNaturalist. We can't wait to see your observations and all your pollinator pictures throughout the week!

If you are new to iNaturalist, check out their Getting Started page to get familiar with the website and app at https://www.inaturalist.org/pages/getting+started.

Sign up and learn more about the project at https://www.inaturalist.org/projects/pollinator-week-2021-pollinator-bioblitz. This community science project is hosted by the North American Pollinator Protection Campaign's (NAPPC) Urban Pollinators Taskforce.

#USDA #ForestService has been celebrating #PollinatorWeek since we created the 1st one with #PollinatorPartnership & there's still so much to do to #protectpollinators #FSNatureWatch #savethebees #pollinators #wildflowers

Happy #PollinatorWeek! 🎉🐝🦋🦇🐤

This week marks our fifteenth consecutive year of bringing greater awareness to the critically important issue of pollinator conservation since we founded the initiative in 2007.

“Pollinator Week has grown into an internationally recognized celebration about the importance of the essential pollinating species that keep us and our environment healthy,” said Pollinator Partnership’s Executive Director, Kelly Rourke.

One of the most anticipated events will be the Pollinator Power Party co-hosted with the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI). The virtual party will celebrate pollinators and the role electric power companies have in protecting them and will include scientific lectures by world renowned speakers, celebrity cooking demonstrations, pollinator art and culture, habitat management and professional gardening tips.

Through the numerous virtual and in-person gatherings, webinars, responsible planting sessions, socially distant garden and farm walks, and monument lightings, Pollinator Week 2021 will be a meaningful start to the summer!

Check out our latest Press Release at https://www.pollinator.org/in-the-news for a schedule of our events that will be happening across North America throughout the week!

Department teams up with agency partners to reestablish boreal toad population - New Mexico Wildlife magazine

USFS partnered with New Mexico Game and Fish and Colorado Division of Wildlife to re-establish boreal toads into Carson National Forest! Efforts have included supplementing the population with tadpoles, toadlets and adults. You can read more about their efforts here: http://magazine.wildlife.state.nm.us/department-partners-with-colorado-parks-and-wildlife-to-release-boreal-toads/ #FSNatureWatch #AmphibianWeek

Last June, the Department, in partnership with Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW) and the U.S. Forest Service, released 72 adult and young boreal toads at Trout Lakes near the northern New Mexican town of Tierra Amarilla. The toads were released in the marshy zone by the upper lake, where the treelin...

Oregon Spotted Frogs

Innovative thinking by Gifford Pinchot National Forest biologists helped create breeding habitat the threatened Oregon spotted frog. Biologists repaired a gap in a beaver dam, causing the meadow to re-flood. Learn more about the project here: https://usfs.maps.arcgis.com/apps/Cascade/index.html?appid=f1aa6284af1846d5a81d248f37c4372f #FSNatureWatch #AmphibianWeek

In 2019 the Gifford Pinchot National Forest created a beaver dam analog to improve habitat for Oregon spotted frogs on the forest.

The Tonto National Forest plays an active role in recovering the Chiricahua leopard frog, a species listed as threatened under the U.S. Endangered Species Act. Biologists on the Forest survey known frog populations looking for egg masses during the breeding season. In coordination with partners at Arizona Game and Fish Department and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, district biologists collect and transport wild egg masses for head-starting at the Phoenix Zoo’s leopard frog recovery facilities. Head-starting at the Phoenix Zoo allows the eggs to get past their most vulnerable stage of survivorship. Those head-started individuals are then released back to wild sites on the Tonto National Forest once they are late-stage tadpoles or metamorphosed frogs. #AmphibianWeek #FSNatureWatch
