Kicking-off a crowd funding campaign on Monday!

We have some exciting news:  this coming Monday we’ll be launching a crowd funding campaign to support outreach and engagement of the Notes from Nature citizen science community.   This is a big step for us, and very important, as citizen scientists are the lifeblood of this and all citizen science projects.  We will use the funds generated through this campaign to hire student interns who will focus on writing about the Notes from Nature collections, research, and maintaining communications across the community.  This will allow us to build stronger connections between our citizen scientists and the researchers working with collections, particularly as we continue to add more exciting collections from around the country and world.

We hope that you’ll take a look at our campaign and consider contributing, share with your family and friends, or simply continue to support Notes from Nature through participation as a citizen scientist.   Please see our campaign here:  https://uva.useed.net/projects/84/home

Be sure to watch the video on our campaign page, too!  We specifically highlight the Mountain Lake Biological Collection and several team members from the University of Virginia.
