Scheduled Citizen Science Trainings for ‘Seasonal Signs’

The Signs of the Seasons citizen science project is a statewide initiative aimed at understanding Maine’s changing climate through the identification and documentation of cyclical and seasonal changes in more than 20 indicator species. These species, which include milkweed, butterflies, and loons, are crucial for this undertaking.

Next week, the University of Maine Cooperative Extension and Maine Sea Grant will be hosting a series of workshops for individuals interested in participating in the project. The first training session will take place in Brunswick on April 4 from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m., while in Falmouth, training will begin on April 5 from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., both at Stimpson’s Point and Gilsland Farm Audubon Center respectively. For those unable to attend in person, a 3-part webinar will also be available.

These workshops are free of charge but registration is mandatory. To learn more about the project and register, visit
