GREENWICH, Conn. -- Tim Walsh, Bruce Museum Manager of Natural History Collections and Citizen Science, will discuss current Citizen Science initiatives in need of volunteers during an event Sunday.
The event is from 1:30-4 p.m. at the museum's Seaside Center, 1 Museum Drive.
No experience or scientific expertise is required to volunteer. Projects include:
Cat Tracker: Seeking the owners of outdoor cats. Track your cat's travels using GPS technology.
Connecticut Turtle Atlas: Help us find turtles. We need observers to collect data on the location of turtles throughout the state.
School of Ants: Help scientists identify and map distributions of local ant species.
Each project takes about an hour. For free access, contact Seaside Center Manager Cynthia Ehlinger by e-mail, or enter the park after 1 p.m. and inform the front gate personnel you are attending the First Sunday Science event.
