Plant & Wildlife Monitoring at The Fells

  • November 20, 2019
  • 9:30 AM - 12:30 PM
  • Long Pond Parking Lot, Winchester, MA

We welcome you to take a peep and/or help us gathering science field information relating to plants, birds, and insects at the Fells. In the end, it's likely that you'll love it so much that you'll want to join our group of citizen scientists.

In the course of 3+ hours, we survey 6 sites (4 plant phenology sites + 2 arthropod monitoring sites). We also monitor bird activity at 2 ponds. We'll record information following nationally standardized phenology and biodiversity protocols (and fed to shared global platforms).

Age: Adults (16+) & Seniors.

⚠️ Hiking pace between sites: Fast. Between sites, we will hike relatively fast 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 -in tune with our environment- and to discover our urban woodland's biodiversity and cycles while contributing to science.

ⓘ Details & Registration: This is an RSVP event. Please make sure you only register if you are committed to attending and cancel your ticket if your plans change so as not to limit opportunity for others. We will email you when necessary if there is any change plan due to weather and other reasons. Register here » Thanks!
