Seeking citizen scientists to participate in the BiodiversiTREE research project - Last year, volunteers helped us plant approximately 20,000 trees to create an experimental forest that will be followed and studied for the next 100 years in an effort to better understand biodiversity in temperate forests. Now, we need help tracking, maintaining, and monitoring our forest. Currently, volunteers are working to tag all of the trees so that we can find them and they won’t get cut down by mowers (since many of them are only ankle to knee high) and removing a lot of the weeds that have grown up around the trees. No prior knowledge is required. As a reminder, this project takes place outside (so it can be quite hot) and lots of bending and kneeling is required. Looking forward, we will be looking for individuals, families, and groups to “adopt” plots and be responsible for plot maintenance and data collection (things like soil samples and tree measurements).
When: Wednesday afternoons from 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. We also hope to add some Saturday dates.
