What You’ll Do:
This form of outdoor stewardship involves collecting data about the area’s plants, animals, and insects to support the Greeley Natural Areas and Trails Division. Volunteers ages 12+ will have the opportunity to explore McCloskey Natural Area’s variety of habitats and learn about the area’s plants and wildlife as they observe and record their sightings through the free iNaturalist app. Breakfast and lunch will be provided, making this a fun and easy way to care for Colorado with the whole family.
Why It Matters:
Your data collection will help inform the Greeley Natural Areas and Trails Division about the biodiversity of the McCloskey Natural Area from plants to birds, mammals, and invertebrates so they can develop and implement effective strategies for managing the site. These methods may be replicated at other natural areas throughout Greeley, taking your impact even further!
