Biodiversity Safari: migratory birds and flowering plants

May 20, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm

All Invited! Please Join Us May 20th for the first Biodiversity Safari in Uxbridge
MLT Board members and volunteers are embarking on a four month long “Biodiversity Safari” to create an inventory of plants and animals on one of our premier, member-owned conservation properties. We can use YOUR help as we assemble a team of naturalists and nature enthusiasts to identify flowers, birds, insects, wetland life, mushrooms and mosses, and night-time creatures at this special farm in Uxbridge.

This citizen science opportunity is not only a wonderful time to share your own knowledge of New England flora and fauna, but also to learn from others. Each event will be limited to 20 participants.  Please see the details below and sign up by writing to us now at Please include your name, best phone number, and number who would like to participate.

When you register, we will send you the start and end times and the street address of the property. Due to the site conditions, we recommend these events for adults, teens and children over 10 years old with a parent.

Here’s the schedule for the topics and the dates. You do not have to sign up for all events — but please let us know if you can commit to all events.
