Join us this year from May to September for all sorts of different online events about biodiversity – there’s something for everyone! We’re still working on finalizing some details so be sure to check back in for even more events.

They’ll be taking place Tuesdays at 4 pm EDT live on Zoom. Be sure to register each week for the link to play! Check out the list below more details and the registration link.

FREE WEBINARS

Attend our free webinars! Learn from local experts about how you can help monitor biodiversity; growing your own food; the importance of pollinators; how to build a rain garden; all about green infrastructure; and much more!

BIOBLITZ

Get ready to explore your nearby nature and participate in an online Bioblitz every month! Grab your kids a magnifying glass, dust off those old binoculars and get your phones ready to take pictures of what the plants and critters you see. Make sure to download iNaturalist on your smart phones ahead of time so you can upload your pictures and become a citizen scientist! Join our project on iNaturalist “Ecology Ottawa’s Bioblitz 2020” and start contributing your observations today!

The whole family can be a biodiversity champion! Check out these Biodiversity Bingo cards below that you and your kids can use while out bioblitz-ing! We’ve got 2 different levels to choose from. Don’t forget to take a picture of your child’s observations and upload it to iNaturalist!

Right-click on the image below, select “open image in a new tab” and feel free to print so you can cross of your observations until you reach BINGO!

WORKSHOPS

We’ll also be hosting workshops that will go into more detail about a certain topic and provide you with project materials. These will be offered at various price points depending on your preferences.
