Event description
A lovely Biodiversity walk at Fresh Pond recording how seasons pass and shape our plants and wildlife in a beautiful reservation.

About this Event

Join Claire and Earthwise Aware (EwA) citizen scientists for a casual walk focusing on observing and recording the incredible biodiversity of the Fresh Pond Reservation. With these walks and through the EwA photo documentation using the iNaturalist platform, we contribute to biodiversity science while enjoying together the outdoors in this beautiful urban park.

No expertise required / beginners welcome! You can prepare for the walk by downloading the iNaturalist app and creating a free account. Check out the 'EwA at Fresh Pond' iNaturalist project to see 800+ species that we documented so far in the reservation. Send us your iNaturalist username, and you'll get the change to have your observations count in our studies! There is always something new to discover and add to this growing list!
