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 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.

ⓘ Registration & Courtesy Rule: This is an RSVP event. ⚠ Please read! COVID-19 times call for a Courtesy Rule for Free Events like ours: For obvious public safety reasons, we’re limiting the size of our events, so please we ask you to follow a register-and-commit rule. 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. If we don't receive an answer within 2 days of the reminder, we will have to cancel your ticket to give it to someone else on our waiting list.

◇ 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.
