The EwA naturalist team introduces how to document the Fells' ecological communities at risk in a fast-changing world. Join us!

About this event:


The Earthwise Aware's naturalist team assesses & documents the Fells' ecological communities at risk in a fast-changing world. This is an orientation field session that introduces the science program and team. You will help the team record bird movement, observe seasonal phases on fauna and flora, monitor bio-pollution, and map habitat fragmentation. It's also a chance to learn new skills and join the team & effort ツ


Register & Commit Rule: This is an RSVP Event limited to a small number of guests (confirmation is required). Due to a very high ratio of attendees not showing up to free events (70%), we now have to ask for your confirmation. A week prior to the event, you'll be reminded of this via email. Thanks for your understanding and courtesy!


Why limit the number of attendees? EwA caps the attendance size of its events so that they remain low impact and ethical for the wildlife and habitats that we document.


Hiking pace: Moderate-to-fast. We hike relatively fast when we can–yet very quietly–on the lookout for any kind of signs. Wear long pants and sturdy boots. This is a great opportunity to learn how to be alert and in tune with our environment and to discover our urban woodland's biodiversity and cycles while contributing to science.


Age: Adults (16+) / Rendezvous: Long Pond Parking Lot.


What to Wear & Bring: Although these will be slow-paced hikes, please dress appropriately and consider wearing long pants (for the possibility of ticks, poison ivy, etc.) and sturdy hiking shoes. Bring water. Also, know that there is no bathroom in the forest.
