A lovely Biodiversity walk in the Fells exploring how seasons pass and shape our plants and wildlife in our beautiful urban forest.
About this event:
Join Claire O'Neill & Kathy McGlathery for a lovely Biodiversity walk in the Fells exploring how seasons pass and shape our plants and wildlife in our beautiful urban forest. We'll enjoy, observe and record the flora and fauna in various locations of the woods, starting from the Flynn Rink parking lot.
This is part of Earthwise Aware's biodiversity and phenology studies that collect data about the impact of climate change on the synchronicity of fauna and flora phenophases (i.e., observable stages or phases in the annual life cycle of a plant or animal that can be defined by a start and endpoint). This is a great way opportunity to learn how to be alert and in tune with our environment, and to discover our urban woodland's biodiversity and cycles.
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, 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.
What to wear and 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.
For any question, you can contact Claire at [email protected].
