📅 EwA Coming Events

Space is limited for all our events for health reasons and-as importantly–to avoid putting pressure on natural habitats. We are asking our audience to follow a Register-and-commit (or cancel when you know you can't come). 🎟️ > here

  • Monthly Biodiversity and phenology field orientation in the Fells this coming Wednesday (April 14th | 🎟️ > here)! They are great opportunities to learn about our local fauna, flora, and seasonal cycles while recording critical data to help science and our communities protect our urban natural habitats. Space is limited for all our events and we are asking our audience to follow a Register-and-commit (or cancel when you know you can't come).

  • Coming EwA webinar: 🐛 Urban Insects - Help us Help Them in 2021 (April, 20th - 8pm | 🎟️  webinar registration) » If you want to help pollinators and insects in general, as well as learn what's in the area - that webinar is for you!


EwA Fieldwork (& Resources)

We are monitoring weekly at all sites now (including scouting Horn Pond to set phenology and entomology survey sites). Our biodiversity and habitat documentation fieldwork is also as healthy as ever thanks to our group of core citizen scientists who simply rock!
