February 26th Green Drinks: Citizen Science – How can you get involved?

14 Feb

When:  Wednesday, February 26th from 6:30-8:30pm

Where:  Firehouse Grill, 750 Chicago Avenue, Evanston

What:  A chance to learn, network, exchange ideas, and take action!

There’s a wild world out there and this Green Drinks is going to teach you how you can get more in touch with it—scientifically speaking.

On Wednesday, February 26th, three citizen scientists will be speaking about their experiences with their respected organizations in citizen science. Lisa Culp has been a citizen science volunteer for the past 5 ½ years through the Chicago Botanic Garden’s Plants of Concern program and orchid monitoring with Fish and Wildlife Service. She is also a full-time tennis player instructor. Jonathon Schlesinger is the co-director of Habitat 2030, a volunteer group of “young-ish” scientists who act as stewards of the land and also monitor and collect data on a wide variety of wildlife. Jonathon will be presenting with Daniel Suarez, a co-director of Habitat 2030 and another staff member of Plants of Concern.

We hope you will join us for this free event at the Firehouse Grill and learn how you can become a part of a large group of citizen scientists serving our Chicagoland area!
