Celebrate National Parks with Citizen Science @NatlParkService

Elwha river 1

On August 25th the US National park service turns 100! Celebrate by volunteering, via Discover

The park system provides many excellent citizen science opportunities to visitors.
Below, you’ll find five great national park projects.

Geoscientists in the Parks:
Students and others with natural resource experiences are needed to assist the National Parks with mapping, monitoring, and other research tasks. Locations can be found across the United States.

Common Loon Citizen Science Project at Glacier National Park:
Volunteers are needed in Glacier National Park in Montana to monitor for common loons. The data are used to protect these beautiful birds.

Glacial National Park Invasive Plants:
With more than 700 miles of hiking trails, this park needs volunteers to monitor for invasive plants. With information on location and abundance of invasives, park staff can improve their management strategy.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
