Have you ever wanted to participate in scientific research? Come join the citizen science team at the Mobile Botanical Gardens and learn how you can contribute to citizen science projects going on at the Gardens. Amanda Wilkins, curator of plant collections, will lead an introductory session about what citizen science is and guide you on how to use technology to record the natural world. We will then venture into the Gardens on a data-gathering mission!

We will be using the free phone app iNaturalist, so attendees must have access to a smartphone. Participants must be 13 and up!
