118 Elliot presents ‘The Long Way’, an Exhibit of Drawings by Aron Namenwirth, which will open with an artist’s reception from 5-9 PM during Brattleboro’s Gallery Walk on Friday, October 6, 2023.
Come out to catalog the amazing biodiversity of Pleasant Valley Reservoir, Brattleboro’s Watershed Forest!
A BioBlitz is a crowdsourced community science effort to record as many species within a designated location and time period as possible. Everyone works together at a BioBlitz—scientists, families, students, teachers, and other community members—to get a snapshot of biodiversity. This bioblitz is being co-hosted by the Brattleboro Conservation Commission and Bonnyvale Environmental Education Center (BEEC). Just bring yourself (and a friend!), some water, and a smartphone with the iNaturalist app installed. If you have binoculars or a macro lens for your phone, bring that, too!
Please register for free at:
If you’re new to iNaturalist, BEEC will also be hosting a training on Sunday, June 11th at 10am at their new offices (1223 Bonnyvale Rd, West Brattleboro). Register at:
and join the iNaturalist project at https://www.inaturalist.org/projects/biodiversity-of-brattleboro-watershed-forest
We will meet at the Yankee Dog / MamaSezz parking lot, divvy up locations to survey, and groups will carpool to the Gulf Rd and Pleasant Valley Rd. entrances from there. A wrap event will follow at BEEC to gather, help with any lingering observations or uploads, and share out the results of all your work!
Can’t make it to the Bioblitz but still want to contribute? The iNaturalist project will remain open and will automatically add any public observations you make within the boundaries of the Pleasant Valley Reservoir.
