WakeNature to host Data RoundUp

WakeNature to host WakeNature Data RoundUp, on May 19th, 2014, 9am – 2pm,  at the NC Museum of Natural Sciences, Environmental Conference Center.

The WakeNature Data RoundUp will bring together local naturalists and scientists to identify and document important habitats in Wake County for potential protection and appropriate stewardship.  WakeNature is particularly interested in places that should receive consideration for conservation in Wake County.  Some of these habitats might not rise to the level of Natural Heritage Program designation, and our intent is to add information about these areas to the geographic information system (GIS) map base of WakeNature Preserve Partnership data.

The WakeNature Data RoundUp will be an open house format – feel free to drop in any time – we are offering “Data Spotlight” sessions during which we hope to attract groups of people with similar expertise so that they can collaborate and combine knowledge.

The Data Spotlight Sessions Are…

  • Birds & Mammals: 9 am – 10 am
  • Reptiles & Amphibians: 10 am – 11 am
  • Fish & Invertebrates: 11 am – 12 pm
  • Plants & Natural Communities: 12 pm – 1 pm
  • Geology & Hydrology: 1 pm – 2 pm

We encourage participants to RSVP for the event!
