Spring is the Season for Citizen Science!

Would you like to learn about citizen science, ecology, and how you can contribute to our knowledge of nature? Are you interested in applying your passion for the Fells to field research?  Friends of the Fells partner group Earthwise Aware (EwA) has a number of regional Spring events for you!


EwA will be conducting two conservation initiatives in the Fells at various dates throughout the Spring:

Tracking Signs of Spring at The Fells: various dates

It has been relatively warm this winter, and for the past few decades, seasons have been shifting their starting and end dates. We’ll track signs of Spring. This is part of our effort to collect data about the impact of climate change on the synchronicity of floral and faunal phenophases

More information and available dates Here.

Discovering & Protecting the Vernal Pools of The Fells: various dates

This is a great community-based conservation initiative for protecting the vernal pools and wetland habitats of the Middlesex Fells Reservation through education, partnerships, and science.

Be sure to check EwA’s calendar and eventbrite pages for more citizen-science events in the region, and future programs occurring in the Fells!
