City of Nanaimo Bio Blitz in Linley Valley Park
On May 30th Wellington Secondary Students participated in the City of Nanaimo Bio Bliz in Linley Valley Park. City of Nanaimo shared the results of an on-going bio-physical assessment of Lindley Valley and participated in the public planning process to help define a long term vision for the park and future trail and green way connections. City of Nanaimo staff, VIU instructors, EDI (Environmental Dynamics Inc.), MABRRI (Mount Arrowsmith Biosphere Regional Research Institute) and local naturalist and biologist worked with the students to identify local birds and wildlife, wetland fish and invertebrates, and forest and plant communities in Linley Valley Park. The students were divided into four sessions which included Terrestrial Wildlife Inventory Techniques and Guided Walk where students learned about wildlife survey techniques, including the use of track tubes to identify small mammals. The second session was the Wetland Inventory Techniques and Guided Walk with EDI. Students used fish traps to identify fish and amphibians. The third session went on an Plant Identification and Survey Techniques where students went on a guided food forest walk and compiled a plant list. The fourth group went on a Bird Identification and Guided Walk.
