Event description

Description

Join Laura & Claire for a lovely Biodiversity walk in the Fells exploring how seasons pass affect 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 our effort to study biodiversity and 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.
