|Webinar: Photograph Trailside Flowers for Science, May 15, 16|
As part of the Appalachian Mountain Club's ongoing research on the impacts of climate change on the Appalachian region, AMC documents flowering plants alongside our trails. We need your help collecting data.
Using an app called iNaturalist, you can join tens of thousands of outdoor enthusiasts who photograph plants and upload the photos to be used for scientific research. Learn more about the project at https://www.outdoors.org/articles/blogs/conservation-blog/citizen-science-amc?utm_campaign=con-can-050718&utm_medium=email&utm_source=internal-can&utm_content=cta2
By participating, you'll help to increase our understanding of how climate change impacts plant development. You'll get the chance to improve your plant identification skills and learn more about our mountain ecosystems.
