Their discussion focused on invasive species. The information was just what I needed. I'm planning a presentation on citizen science projects this summer and they covered so much of what I should include. Now I have more to add to my talk. I also found a book I need to to purchase.
Christine suggested If you are interested in starting a citizen science project with your students, you should start small. I agree. You can find great information at several web sites: scistarter.com; Inaturalist ; budburst; birds.cornell.edu; projectnoah... Christine works in Maine with a project called vital signs. You can find lots of lessons there too.
I ended the webinar thinking this topic would make a great teacher workshop this summer!
