Seize the Data Citizen Science Programs: Join us in an Outdoor-Science Adventure
Join Arboretum Educators in helping scientists track plant and animal populations and behaviors using citizen science! Scientists around the world need help collecting data, and with a few basic tools and methods Citizen Scientists of all ages can contribute to real science. Upon completion of the program you can continue the adventure by logging your own discoveries online! Participation can be credited toward Criteria II hours for the NC Environmental Education Certification Program.
Seize the Data programs are supported by the North Carolina GlaxoSmithKline Foundation and are free to the public (regular parking fees apply). Programs begin in the Trellis Classroom at the Education Center and run from 10:00 am to 11:30 am on the third Saturday of each month.
