Does your student love to be outdoors?  Field Guides is a drop off program for middle and high school students.

Community science (formerly known as citizen science) takes the scientific process out of its silos and into local communities. Community scientists are regular people, not specialists, who learn to gather data from the world around them in order to contribute to large scale scientific projects. This spring, our Field Guides will get a chance to explore some community science projects going on locally. Be sure to dress for the weather, wear shoes/boots that can get wet and clothes that can get dirty. Please bring a water bottle. Masks are required.
  • Drop Off Program: Each session is $10
  • Sign up for one or sign up for both sessions. Each session will focus on a different community science program.
  • Wednesday, March 24, 3-5pm
  • Wednesday, April 28, 3-5pm

Field guides is fully outdoors and will occur rain or shine. Participants must bring a water bottle and a mask. Masks will be worn when social distancing is not possible.
