Spring into Science: Join Maine’s Climate Monitoring Initiative with Free Workshops

Scheduled Citizen Science Trainings for ‘Seasonal Signs’

Maine Sea Grant and the University of Maine Cooperative Extension are launching a series of workshops for individuals interested in participating in the Signs of the Seasons citizen science project. This statewide initiative aims to identify and document cyclical and seasonal changes in more than 20 indicator species that are crucial for understanding Maine’s changing climate. The species include milkweed, butterflies, and loons.

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 Gilsland Farm Audubon Center. For those unable to attend in person, a three-part webinar will also be available.

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