For any scouts (and adults) who are not going on the April weekend trip, here is the information about the citizen science events happening in Cambridge that weekend. You can help teach others in Cambridge about our local biodiversity by volunteering. Volunteer as a “welcomer,” or a citizen science guide (using the iNaturalist app), or an art guide (helping younger kids create arthropods). High school students can receive community service hours, but kids as young as 10 can serve as “welcomers” alongside an adult. The three events are:
Saturday, April 28, 2018, 1:30-3:30 p.m. Kids, Bugs, Art at Magazine Beach. MAKE A BEE. Rain date Sunday, 4/29 4:00-6:00 p.m.
Sunday, April 29, 2018, 9:30-11:30 a.m. Kids, Bugs, Art at Danehy Park. MAKE A BEETLE. (Rain cancels). ***We really need some volunteers at this session!! -all volunteer roles needed***
Sunday, April 29, 2018, 1:00-3:00 p.m. Kids, Bugs, Art at Fresh Pond. MAKE A BUTTERFLY OR MOTH. (Rain cancels)
The three events are part of the global City Nature Challenge. The Cambridge Wildlife Puppetry Project and Green Cambridge are co-sponsors (along with some other local organizations). The volunteer signup is a google form, here: goo.gl/forms/1ZsdlKgJ38SO79Ex2.
