Scheduled Citizen Science Trainings for ‘Seasonal Signs’

Documenting the Climate Shifts: Statewide Initiative Kicks Off with Workshops

A statewide initiative aimed at identifying and documenting cyclical and seasonal changes in over 20 crucial indicator species is set to kick off next week with a series of workshops. The Signs of the Seasons citizen science project, led by the University of Maine Cooperative Extension and Maine Sea Grant, is seeking individuals interested in participating.

The first training session will take place on April 4, from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m., at Stimpson’s Point in Brunswick. In Falmouth, training will begin on April 5, from 10:30 a.m., to 12:30 p.m., at the Gilsland Farm Audubon Center. For those unable to attend in person, a three-part webinar will also be available.

These workshops are free of charge but mandatory registration is required. To learn more about the project and register visit extension.umaine.edu/signs-of-the-seasons/training. Milkweed, butterflies, and loons are some of the crucial species that will be monitored as part of this initiative that aims to understand Maine’s changing climate through scientific research.
