Here's the recap of another busy week at EwA and a few highlights of what's coming...

📸  So many interesting winter sightings again this week. If we have to pick one, that'd be the observation of the carving of what we think is a typical bark beetle spotted by Bill and Joe in the Fells. We're also excited to see skunk cabbage flowers popping out in our biodiversity records! it is such a unique plant that we will spend some time talking about this coming weekend during our Fells Forest Exploration (at least that's my plan).

📊  Thanks to all for great biodiversity records this week!  - 230 observations total over 120 species. Curious about this week's records that have been validated by the iNat community so far? > here.


Running tally: 🏆  To date, we recorded 58,726 observations of 5,952 distinct species! Check our EwA umbrella project and see the details per site/observer & more... > here

EwA Fieldwork (& Resources)

While our phenology recording is still sparse at this time of the year we start to notice signs of spring  and we're getting excited to start monitoring! Our leader team is meeting this week so that we get our sites and monitoring pace organized. Stay tuned!

Our biodiversity and habitat documentation fieldwork is otherwise as healthy as ever thanks to our group of core citizen scientists who simply rock! 🗺️ EwA Sites Map | 🌱  Site Protocols and Guides - Field Rosters - Field Notes > All here! | ℹ️ More About EwA Citizen Science Program » here
