Coming Soon: More events and workshops for 2019!
Kannagara Woods Spring BioBlitz*
May 18, 2019 from noon to 8pm
On Saturday, May 18, 2018 we will once again be partnering with our friends at Green Triangle to host a BioBlitz of the sanctuary. The event last September was a huge success - and lots of fun - with 98 different species of flora and fauna catalogued but, in order to identify all the Spring ephemerals and other early season plants, we really need to do a second one. Whether you're a seasoned naturalist, an experienced gardener, a permaculturist or just a person who enjoys a walk in the woods, we hope you'll join us on May 18. It's one of the prettiest times of the year here and this is a great way to enjoy a day of "forest bathing". As always, admission is free but preregistration is required.
Kannagara Woods BioBlitz* and Plant Swap
Sept. 16, 2018 from noon to 8pm
On Sunday, September 16, 2018 we partnered with our good friends at Green Triangle to host a BioBlitz of the sanctuary. A group of about 20 people, from professional naturalists to enthusiastic amateurs, got together and spent the day identifying and cataloging 98 species of plants, animals and insects living in the sanctuary.
(For lists of all the species identified, click here.)
We'll be following up with another BioBlitz in Spring 2019. If you'd like us to keep you up-to-date on this or any of our future events, join our mailing list (below) and we'll let you know whenever we add something to our schedule.
* A BioBlitz is a one-day survey of an area during which the participants try to record all the different species of plants and animals they encounter. It's a great way to experience the often unnoticed biodiversity of a place. It's also a whole lot of fun!
