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

📸  So many beautiful winter sightings again this week. If we have to pick one, that'd be the European flat oyster that Caitlin sighted at Nahant. Another one is the nice zoomed shot on Hemlock woolly adelgids (as we are about to monitor this species at one of our phenology sites, we are starting to look at them at very close range!).


📊  Thanks to all for great biodiversity records this week!  - 147 observations total over 94 species. Curious about this week's records that have been validated by the iNat community so far? > here.


Running tally : 🏆  To date, we recorded 58,013 observations of 5,932 distinct species! Check our EwA umbrella project and see the details per site/observer & more... > here


📅  EwA Coming Events

  • Our next public Biodiversity walk is our monthly Biodiversity and phenology field orientation in the Fells this coming Wednesday (Feb 10th)! They are great opportunities to learn about our local fauna, flora, and their 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). 🎟️ > here

  • Also on the EwA calendar this week: EwA's Nature Virtual Hour | Tuesdays at noon (🎟️  webinar registration) » A great opportunity to gather as a community and share our nature stories and our favorite week's sightings. Don't miss it! 


EwA Fieldwork (& Resources)

While our phenology recording is sparse as flora and fauna slowed down, our biodiversity and habitat documentation fieldwork is 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

To all of you: Stay healthy!
