April is Citizen Science month! You don’t have to be an expert to be part of scientific research. Citizen science or community science is real scientific research conducted by amateur (or nonprofessional) scientists.There are a huge number of ways to get involved…by tracking migratory birds, participating in a bioblitz, studying animal behavior, counting pollinators or plant species, etc.
To kick off Citizen Science Month, Latham Library will be hosting the Birds of Vermont Museum for a program called Community Science 101. Learn to observe and report animals and plants you see, hear, or photograph. See how your data can be used by scientists to measure changes over time and space.
This program is best suited for adults and teens.
