For those of you living in or around Massachusetts, you are lucky enough to be able to participate in this weekend's 3rd annual Biodiversity Days. Sponsored by the Mass. Executive Office of Environmental Affairs, Biodiversity Days are a time for people to get out into their communities to appreciate (and record) all the species they see. The species lists are then entered into a database that is available for viewing via the web. If you want to search for events in your neighborhood, you can go here. And if you're attending an event, take a moment to compare native vs. non-native biodiversity.
For those of you too far away from Massachusetts but still in the U.S., May is nationwide Biodiversity Month, but there are still events that carry over to the weekend, so check them out!
