About the event
Guest leader Allison Fortune from CARP will lead this introductory session focusing on how to identify birds by sight and sound. Please wear sturdy outdoor footwear and dress for the weather (including consideration for bugs and weather!). If you have a bird guide or binoculars, feel free to bring those along.
This event is planned to coincide with the City Nature Challange. Participants should bring a phone or camera to collect photo observations to post on iNaturalist.
The City Nature Challenge is a friendly annual international challenge to see which city can record and upload the most observations of wildlife species using the free iNaturalist platform. From the tiniest bug to the tallest tree, from belugas to birds to beavers, participants are encouraged to take pictures of all the flora and fauna they can find. By doing so, they’re contributing to an international database used to track biodiversity around the world. It’s a great way to turn a simple walk in the woods into truly impactful “citizen science” activity.
