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!
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.
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!
