Please join us for the Greater Lawrence Biodiversity Family Program! There will be three chances to join us in a bioblitz of your local parks and wild places. What's a bioblitz you may ask? It's a gathering of community members whose sole purpose is to identify and document as many species as possible within a short timeframe. All this data is uploaded to the popular nature app, iNaturalist, where a huge collection of citizen science data lives to aid scientists and community planners. Are you up for the challenge? Mass Audubon staff will lead the program and help to point out and identify species of interest. If you're interested in discovering what's in your backyard, this program is for you!
Saturday May 20th - 10am to 12pm - Riverfront State Park
Saturday June 3rd - 10am to 12pm - Shawsheen Park and River Trail
Saturday June 17th - 10am to 12pm - Stevens Estate at Osgood Hill
Sign up for one, two, or all three!
Note: This is a free family program!
This program takes place at Shawsheen Park. We will meet next to the parking lot behind South Lawrence East Elementary School on Crawford Street. Mass Audubon will be there to check in and welcome you. Please come dressed for the weather and wear comfortable shoes you don't mind getting a little muddy or wet.
NOTE: This is NOT a drop off program and all children must be accompanied by an adult.
