We’re excited to offer another independent volunteering activity at Crosby Farm for volunteers interested in contributing to a community science project. Over the warmer months ahead, volunteers will venture to the park independently on a monthly basis to take photographs of the Adaptive Silviculture for Climate Change research plots. The images collected will be used by scientists to track growth and seasonal variation over the course of this 20-year study. We’ll have photo stations marked at each plot, so all you’ll have to do is point and shoot with your cell phone.
If this sounds like something you’d like to get involved with, and if you’re able to commit to visiting the park each month through the fall, email Mike Curran at email@example.com.
