Event description
A lovely Biodiversity chat at the Growing Center recording how seasons pass and shape our plants and wildlife in a beautiful city garden.

About this Event

Join Claire and Earthwise Aware (EwA) citizen scientists for a casual chat focusing on observing and recording the plants and insects of the Somerville Growing Center. With these observation events and through the EwA photo documentation using the iNaturalist platform, we contribute to biodiversity science while enjoying together the outdoors in this beautiful little garden. We'll also tell you about our insects studies at this location.

No expertise required / beginners welcome! You can prepare for the event by downloading the iNaturalist app (Apple | Android) and creating a free account. Check out the 'EwA at the Growing Center' iNaturalist project to see some 300 species documented to date from the garden thanks to our citizen science team. 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!

ⓘ 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.

◇ Rendezvous Location: The Somerville Community Growing Center.

◇ What to Wear & Bring: Masks are mandatory.
