Hi Arlington Birders,
MassWildlife received the request below but doesn't have anyone available on that date. I immediately thought of you as talented, urban, and then some, birders. Anyone interested in leading this walk? If so, contact Susan Janowsky below.
Jean Rogers, Fresh Pond Reservation
We at the Esplanade Association are reaching out to you, the Wildlife Education Specialist for MassWildlife, in the hopes of speaking with you about a program in the Esplanade this summer. Family Adventures on the Charles River Esplanade are geared toward bringing families to the Esplanade to engage them in the local environment and educate them about biodiversity in the Charles River Basin. We are interested in bringing a wildlife specialist in for our Wildlife Watch day on Saturday, August 19th from 10:00am to 1:00pm to lead a walk through the Esplanade, along the Charles and speak on the native and non-native species.
The program is intended to focus on all kinds of wildlife, however, considering the urban nature of the Esplanade and the abundance of birds, we are hoping to find someone with a strong ornithological knowledge. We plan to provide the children with binoculars and packets with species information for wildlife bingo. We would love to have you or a colleague lead the walk to ensure the success of this program. We are eagerly awaiting a response.
Best,
Susan Janowsky
