Pollinator, Bird & Plant Monitoring at The Fells
We welcome you to take a peep and/or help us gathering science field information relating to plants, birds and insects at the Fells. At the end, it's likely you'll love it so much, that you'll want to join our group of citizen scientists. In the course of 3+ hours we survey 5 sites (4 plant phenology sites + 1 pollinator monitoring site). We also monitor bird activities at 2 ponds. We'll record information following nationally standardized phenology and biodiversity protocols (and fed to shared global platforms). Age: Adults (16+) & Seniors.⚠️ Hiking pace between sites: Fast. We'll start with our Long Pond sites then move to the 90mm site, and finish with our Bellevue sites. Between sites, we will hike relatively fast yet very quietly, on the look out for any kind of signs. This is a great way opportunity to learn how to be alert and in tune with our environment, and to discover our urban woodland's biodiversity and cycles.ⓘ Details & Registration: This is an RSVP event. If you intend to come, we ask you kindly that you let us know, so that we can communicate with you about what to wear and what to bring, as well as to be able to inform you if there is any change plan due to weather and other reasons. Thanks! Register here.✉ For any question, you can contact Claire at citizenscience@earthwiseaware.orgⓘ Learn about Earthwise Aware » https://www.earthwiseaware.org/$ Free with a value: This event is free, still... donations to EwA are always welcomed! » Donate at https://www.earthwiseaware.org/donate[Read More...]꙳ EwA Citizen Science: For us, at EwA, this is about the general public engagement in scientific research activities when citizens actively contribute to science either with their intellectual effort or surrounding knowledge or with their tools and resources. Participants provide experimental data and facilities for researchers, raise new questions and co-create a new scientific culture. While adding value, volunteers acquire new learning and skills, and deeper understanding of the scientific work in an appealing way. As a result of this open, networked and trans-disciplinary scenario, science-society-policy interactions are improved leading to a more democratic research based on evidence-informed decision making.꙳ EwA Phenology monitoring is part of our effort to collect information about the impact of climate change on the synchronicity of fauna and flora phenophases (i.e., observable stages or phases in the annual life cycle of a plant or animal that can be defined by a start and end point). ꙳ EwA's Pollinator Survey and Bird Monitoring are intended to help local entomologists and global scientists. This kind of data is lacking, and the type of information we record helps filling this data gap. We feed the info to different global databases that are tracking species richness, population abundance and pollinator and bird phenophases. This is much needed scientific effort to understand the collapse of insect populations -that is being been observed all over the world in the past few years. The data is critical to help understand the implications on avian population, other fauna at large, on our own species (e.g., food security).#nature #ecology #biodiversity #phenology #conservation #citizenScience #science

About Winchester, MA
Winchester Massachusetts is a thriving residential community that is noted for its fine public school system along with its beautiful homes and easy access to Boston.

The late 1800's saw the development of Winchester as an affluent suburban community. Wealthy businessmen moved out of Boston to "the country" and built large and opulent homes. The town's character is still reflected in these beautiful houses built just before and after the turn of the century.

The village atmosphere remains and is fueled by the unusual civic spirit of Winchester's residents. The citizens of the town take an intensive interest in the management of its affairs and in its continued improvement and beautification.
