Public Programs

Members Only – Woodcock Walk

Saturday, April 20, 2024
Buffalo Lakeside Commerce Park/Union Ship Canal

This is a program for current Earth Spirit members only! We will spend some time together on this spring evening in search of the sky dancing American woodcocks as they display for their prospective mate. It’s an exciting and rewarding endeavor that is great for the family. This will not require much walking, but more patience, listening, and watching. Binoculars will be provided for those who need them. REGISTER

The Park School of Buffalo

Join us for the Bioblitz at the Park School of Buffalo! A Bioblitz is a community science project with the goal of identifying as many species as possible within a set time limit to help document an area’s biodiversity and connect people with their natural world.

There will be a morning, afternoon, and evening session. During each of these time blocks, team leaders, each with their own focus, will lead attendees outdoors to find and identify their target species.

Team leader group focuses may include: birds, herbaceous plants, woody plants, aquatic life, mammals and terrestrial vertebrates, and nocturnal life.

During this event, you will join one of these groups during your session on a quest to identify as many species possible within their focus!  Register for one session, or spend all day with us!  It is up to you.
