People Power! Citizen Scientists and the Smithsonian
April 21, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDTFree
As we lead up to Earth Day, meet Smithsonian researchers and volunteers involved in two citizen science projects. eMammal uses motion-activated game cameras to understand and track the diversity of mammals throughout the United States. Fossil Atmospheres examines modern and fossilized ginkgo leaves to understand how local climate patterns have changed through time. Learn how you can get involved with these projects, as well as other citizen science efforts near you.
This free event will stream live on the Smithsonian Folklife YouTube and Facebook channels. Register on Eventbrite at bit.ly/peoplepowerscience.
