Support Notes from Nature!

We are happy to announce the launch of our crowd funding campaign!

Screen Shot 2013-09-23 at 10.51.37 AMWe believe that citizen scientists can play a significant role in helping researchers gain access to the wealth of information held within the more than 2 billion biological specimens around the world.  Access to this information is critical for answering all sorts of questions ranging from how species change to the effects of public policies.  In this campaign, we will be raising money to support the Notes from Nature citizen science crowd sourcing project through the hiring of student interns who will strengthen our engagement between the science teams and the vital citizen scientists.  The crowd funding campaign and this specific internship work is being managed through our partners at the University of Virginia, but will support outreach activities across the entire Notes from Nature community.

We just launched our fundraising campaign today with a goal to raise $10,000. Although we have 45 days to raise this money, we are hoping to start out strong! Every gift counts, so I hope you will join us in supporting this cause.  Please share this message with your friends and family, and anyone who you think may be interested in this exciting citizen science project.
