Signs of the Seasons is a state-wide volunteer phenology monitoring program. Training is being offered for interested volunteers in southern Maine by the UMaine Cooperative Extension in Springvale on April 18th, or Falmouth on April 23rd, both from 4 to 6:30 p.m.:
Signs of the Seasons: A Maine Phenology Project
April 18, York County Cooperative Extension Office, Springvale
April 23, Maine Audubon, Gilsland Farm, Falmouth
Do you notice the seasonal changes in plants and animals? If you do, you can become a citizen scientist, observing and recording these changes as part of the science of phenology. Help scientists who are trying to understand how our natural environment is changing.
If you would like to become a volunteer in our Signs of the Seasons Program, you can register for one of the following training sessions by contacting us here. These training sessions are not information sessions—they are actual trainings for those interested in participating in the program.
Volunteer Training in Springvale on April 18, or Falmouth on April 23; both from 4pm to 6:30pm. To register, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
We are excited to start our 2012 SOS program this season with you!
