April is flying by! Don’t miss these #CitSciMonth events!
By SciStarter Team, Apr 14, 2022
Have you been enjoying Citizen Science Month 2022 as much as we have?! We’ve been learning about birds, taking tours of herbaria (that’s where scientists keep plant specimens), studying iguanas, participating in bioblitzes and more!
Feeling left out? Don’t worry, there are still so many great events to check out before the month is over! Here are a few that you can participate in from anywhere with an internet connection.
In this introductory webinar, you’ll learn all about how to participate in Budburst, a citizen science project hosted by the Chicago Botanic Garden. Anyone can join in — all you have to do is observe plants near you. Researchers use your observations to study plants, climate change and plant-animal interactions.
Join us at this online event where the Budburst team will show us their research projects and tell everyone how to get involved!
Growing plants from seed or propagation is a wonderful way to add plants to your garden. In this webinar presented by the Colorado Native Plant Society, you’ll learn about growing plants by cuttings, divisions, grafting and, of course, seeds, as well as the science behind how it all works.
This webinar is great for beginners and intermediate plant enthusiasts!
The All of Us Research Program is building the most diverse health database in history to learn how our biology, lifestyles and environment affect health. This webinar is all about understanding how that data will be used.
In this webinar, speakers from All of Us California will present on and answer questions about data literacy, especially as it relates to the All of Us Research program.
