Citizen Scientist Program

Please join us on Sunday, March 10 at 5:30 pm (5:15 for refreshments) for our second Citizen Science program. Citizen Scientists are members of the general public who voluntarily contribute time, energy, and resources as part of collaborative projects with professional scientists. CitSci enables research to occur on a large geographic scale over time in ways that individual scientists are unable to duplicate. The scope of opportunity is vast – biology, literature, history, language, nature, medicine, art, physics, social services, climate and space! Our program will feature examples and projects based in the natural world. There will be four presentations: Wally Jenkins – Dragonfly days and data; Vermont dragonflies species diversity, life histories, behavior, and beauty. Cindy Sprague – A study on tracking the population of Eastern Ratsnakes in Addison County, Vermont. Eastern Ratsnakes are listed as state-threatened in Vermont and are rated a high-priority species of greatest conservation need (SGCN). Bob Hyams – Developing an ecosystem plan to protect the Hinesburg Hollow Road wetlands from invasive species. Michaela Stickney – Citizen Superheros of Lake Protection where voluntary lake shoreline surveys intersect with statutes to gain a high level of lake protection. Teens and adults are welcome. Please call 434-4583 or email hpl@gmavt.net for more information.
