Documenting Seasonal Changes in Maine’s Ecosystem: A Citizen Science Project

BySamantha Nguyen

Mar 25, 2024
Scheduled Citizen Science Trainings for ‘Seasonal Signs’

In an effort to document seasonal changes in Maine’s ecosystem, the University of Maine Cooperative Extension and Maine Sea Grant are hosting a series of workshops next week. The Signs of the Seasons citizen science project aims to identify and record cyclical and seasonal changes in more than 20 key species, including milkweed, butterflies, and loons. These species serve as crucial indicators of Maine’s changing climate.

The first training session will be held in Brunswick on April 4 from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. at Stimpson’s Point. In Falmouth, a training session will take place on April 5 from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Gilsland Farm Audubon Center. For those unable to attend in person, a three-part webinar will also be available.

These workshops are free of charge but require registration beforehand. To learn more about the project and register, visit extension.umaine.edu/signs-of-the-seasons/training..
