GREENWICH, Conn. -- The Bruce Museum's latest Citizen Science initiative, School of Ants is up and running.
This new project, in collaboration with University of Florida and North Carolina State University, allows you to collect real data on ants that live in your neighborhood for research scientists, according to a press release.
The research scientists will use ant collections to map localities and distributions, monitor the spread of invasive species and view the effects of climate change across the United States, according to a press release.
The project is designed for teacher, student and family participation; the collection process takes a little more than an hour.
Free collection kits are available at the Bruce Museum. Anyone interested in participating, should contact Tim Walsh, manager of Natural History Collections and Citizen Science, at (203)-413-6767.
