Scheduled Citizen Science Trainings for ‘Seasonal Signs’

The Signs of the Seasons citizen science project is a statewide initiative aimed at identifying and documenting cyclical and seasonal changes in more than 20 indicator species crucial for understanding Maine’s changing climate. The project includes milkweed, butterflies, and loons.

The University of Maine Cooperative Extension and Maine Sea Grant are starting a series of workshops next week to help individuals participate in the project. The first training session will take place in Brunswick on April 4, from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. at Stimpson’s Point. In Falmouth, training will begin on April 5, from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Gilsland Farm Audubon Center. For those unable to attend in person, a 3-part webinar will also be available.

The workshops are free of charge, but registration is mandatory to learn more about the project and attend one of the sessions. To register, visit extension.umaine.edu/signs-of-the-seasons/training
