Forest Explorations with Earthwise Aware

  • December 11, 2021
  • 9:30 AM - 12:00 PM
  • Greenwood Park Parking Lot, 176 Pond St Stoneham, MA 02180

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.

Age: Adults (16+) & Seniors / Difficulty: Easy to Moderate 

◇ 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.

ⓘ Details & Registration: Please note that space is strictly limited, and pre-registration will be required for all of our fall group events ⚠ no on-site registrations will be permitted. Register here today » Thanks!

✉ For any question, you can contact Claire at citizenscience@earthwiseaware.org
