WeDigBio starts tomorrow and a milestone
The Notes from Nature team is excited for the start of WeDigBio tomorrow! WeDigBio (Worldwide Engagement for Digitizing Biocollections) is a global data campaign, virtual science festival, and local outreach opportunity all rolled into one. This 4-day, twice-a-year event mobilizes participants to create digital data about biodiversity specimens.
Notes from Nature will be hosting lots of exciting expeditions featuring plants, beetles, flies, mammals, and even fleas. Remember to complete 10 transcriptions to earn your WeDigBio 2021 badge.
We are also hosting 3 live science talks:
- Thursday Michael Belitz will talk about bias in citizen science data. More information and registration.
- Friday will feature Joe Miller who will talk about GBIF. More information and registration.
- Saturday, Theo Witsell will talk about rare plants in Arkansas. More information and registration.
Lastly, Notes from Nature is approaching a major milestone: 3 million transcriptions completed on our current platform. With your help, it might even happen during the event.Log on and help us celebrate this amazing milestone.
