Scheduled Citizen Science Trainings for ‘Seasonal Signs’

Tracking Maine’s Climate Changes through Citizen Science: Join the Signs of the Seasons Project!

Maine Sea Grant and the University of Maine Cooperative Extension are launching a series of workshops to help individuals take part in the Signs of the Seasons citizen science project. This statewide initiative aims to identify and document seasonal changes in over 20 crucial species, including milkweed, butterflies, and loons. Understanding these changes is essential for understanding Maine’s changing climate.

The first training session will be held on April 4th at Stimpson’s Point in Brunswick from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. In Falmouth, training will begin on April 5th from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Gilsland Farm Audubon Center. For those who cannot attend in person, a three-part webinar will also be available for registration on extension.umaine.edu/signs-of-the-seasons/training at no cost.

The workshops are open to everyone who is interested in participating in this exciting project, which aims to provide valuable insights into Maine’s changing environment while helping citizens become more engaged with scientific research and conservation efforts. By attending one of these workshops or tuning into the webinar, participants can learn how to properly identify and document changes in indicator species across the state of Maine, contributing to a larger effort that will ultimately benefit all of us who call this beautiful state home.
