Conservation Training

The Value Of Contributions By Citizen Scientists

March 30, 2023

6:30 pm – 7:30 pm
Location: Verona Public Library

Interested in ecology? Want to make a difference through conservation in your community? Anyone in the community, young or old, can help contribute to science in a meaningful way. Citizen science activities such as monitoring dragonflies or water quality on a nearby stream or lake, help the scientific community gather wider data sets than they could collect on their own. The Upper Sugar River Watershed Association will explain how the data that citizen scientists collect helps the WI Department of Natural Resources (DNR) to form a picture of habitat health that then informs and influences State DNR policies and laws.
