2 events happened this past week: Our last vernal pool field study of the year, and some scouting of an area of the Fells we don't often explore. Here are a few highlights.

Our favorite observations this time > a tiny critter: a tiny tiny Collembola (Springtail) in the Fells ツ

Thanks to all who came and helped us gather important data about our urban wildlife! 

[In Brief...]

1) Vernal Pool Scouting (11/25/19)
Here's a quick recap of our field session > We hiked to PVP #13879 to ground-truth it and establish a characterization baseline (i.e. phys. documentation at this time of the year + Pool characteristics recording).

📆 The next session will be next year! Stay tuned, and follow us on Eventbrite to not miss any of our public vernal pool scouting > http://earthwiseaware.eventbrite.com/


2) Fells Winter Biodiversity Scouting (11/27/19) 
Now that our phenology sites are officially dormant! 💤  we're in scouting mode for documenting biodiversity in parts of the Fells other than at our fixed sites. 
Check our session log > 11/27/19 session log

This means that we are switching to exploration and scouting mode until Spring. This is what we did with our group this Wednesday, and that was a lot of fun! Thanks to all who joined us! 

I am taking a few weeks' break to finish our EwA annual (science) report. We will schedule our next public monitoring events very soon: stay tuned!
