Event description
Join us for the 2019 City Nature Challenge and help document biodiversity in the park and region. We will explore the local flora and fauna and photo-document all we find with thousands of others across the country. Will Boston make the top of the leaderboard? Maybe if you join us!
Download iNaturalist to your smartphone and establish an iNaturalist account before you arrive so you will be all set to contribute to the City Nature Challenge. We'll provide further instruction at the meeting location and help you identify species we find in the park and the cove.
The day will consist of biodiversity discovery first at Savin Hill Park, and then walking down to Savin Hill Cove to find different species closer to the water. *If you have tall rubber boots, consider bringing them
Getting there: Please meet staff at either of the below times/ locations. Staff will then lead the groups to Savin Hill Park to begin exploration.


8:30am outside of front of the Integrated Science Complex on the UMass Boston Campus (the lawn side, not the concrete campus side)


9:00am at the Savin Hill MBTA station on the red line.


What to wear: Whatever feels comfortable and weather appropriate.  We recommend comfortable shoes since we'll be walking around the Greenway. Conditions can be unpredictable so please monitor the weather in the days leading up the event and dress appropriately.
What to bring: Please bring a snack/lunch and reusable water bottle. Sunscreen and a hat are always recommended. If you have them, tall rubber boots are recommended for intertidal exploration. 
Event will run rain or shine, however, may be cancelled due to severe weather.
