Thanks to all, and to those who attended our online event today. it was the the 3rd one of this week's series about Wildlife Documentation How-to (per location). It was a pleasure to have you with us at the '2020 Urban Quest How-to: Somerville' webinar.

https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/e/2PACX-1vTusTRVLFmVcz-EFjOWsedOIAU--OuBDFaO6BMKpNbcss9hSdULwGt6WjNqYAcGuvChYwiVQ__JbkXz/pub?start=false&loop=false&delayms=3000&slide=id.g4cbfd2dfa3_0_0The slides are publicly available (> here), and if you click the various pointers in those slides you'll land on good content: wildlife documentation guides, field ethics, our projects, etc.

Because today's webinar was very informal, then the recording will be available only to those who attended. We have another more formal version of this webinar on the EwA Youtube channel (and more focused on the wildlife of the Fells yet the search principle is the same). Speaking of which, have a peep at that channel: we have cool video snippets of our fieldwork from many locations in the world.

Here's the links I said I would share:
  • EwA Events Calendar on Eventbrite. In a Covid-19 world, we moved some of our events online. Check our webinars. 🆕 Speaking of Somerville, don't miss next week's talk that Amy and I co-present 'Urban Insects: Help Us Help Them in 2020'. Hopefully, we'll be able to resume our in-person events too! We also have field training events for those who join our citizen science program (Our Somerville studies are focused on Phenology and Insect/pollinator abundance).  
  • EwA Biodiversity & Climate Citizen Science Program. We have 4 study locations: The Fells, Somerville, Fresh Pond, and Mass Audubon Habitat, where we study phenology, insects, vernal pools, birds, habitats, invasives, and biological pollution (that Dog Poop Mapping project that we discussed at the end), etc. Feel free to join any of our ecological studies at any of our locations - just email us at citizenscience[at]earthwiseaware.org
Join any project that you wish to join, and if you want to participate actively in one or more of them don't hesitate to contact us telling which one, and we'll add you as an active participant. In doing so, your observations will be pulled automatically and be part of our study data sets. Nothing to do other than uploading your observations under your account, once we have you as an active participant, we'll do the rest...

We're social! Follow us: We're on FacebookTwitterInstagramYoutubeLinkedIn...
We even have a public discussion group. Feel free to join!

I think I covered it all. If I forgot something, don't hesitate to contact me.

Thanks again for your time today. Have fun this weekend iNating celebrating nature with usI hope to see you soon in the streets and open spaces of Somerville (or anywhere really)!

Cheers & stay healthy! - Claire

Sorry, I just corrected the title of this post: Today's webinar was focused on Somerville (not the Fells).
