Welcome. A moment-to-moment story...

Seeking volunteers to survey rare species

Finding species listed with Natural Heritage of Endangered Species program is a rarity and special concern in urban areas.  The habitat of a rare bird has been observed in the greenbelt following the power-lines from Salem Woods to Spring Pond Woods to Lynn Woods and green areas in between.  The state has asked for our help to conduct a larger survey of the area.  

If (those fearlessly) interested in joining our efforts within one of these areas, to observe and document this genus during a couple warm nights in spring and summer under a specific moon phase between the survey window of May 18-31, and June 16-30, please inquire for more info. 

It is an extraordinary experience listening to the sounds of this nearly forgotten species between the disappearing edges of our growing large towns.  The importance of preserving greenbelts and wildlife corridors around our cities has been lacking in regional planning and is now of urgence to raise the importance.  Regulating greenbelt zones can be a means to cooperative planning between cities and towns, following the times new Ahwahnee Principles, helping protect our environment by creating buffer areas between municipalities, and avoiding boundary issues.
