Event description
The EwA Citizen Science group assesses & documents Fells' ecological communities at risk in a fast-changing World. Join us!

About this Event

The Earthwise Aware's naturalist team assesses & documents Fells' ecological communities at risk in a fast-changing World. This is an opportunity to get introduced to their community 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

⚠️ 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.

ⓘ Registration & Courtesy Rule: This is an RSVP event. For obvious public safety reasons, we’re limiting the size of our events, so please if you don't intend to come to one of our events that you registered for do tell us so that we can give your ticket to someone else who needs it! We will email you when necessary if there is any change in plans due to weather and other reasons. Thanks and register here today!

Age: Adults (16+) & Seniors / Rendezvous: Long Pond is a placeholder location. We might move the location depending on needs and conditions and we'll communicate via emails to our attendees (you need to register to be notified). 

◇ What to Wear & Bring: Masks are mandatory. 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.
