Citizen Science: Fall Flowers

Event Details

Date: September 30, 2021
Time: 6:00 pm—7:00 pm
Location: Museum of York County

Event Description:

The Museum of York County is sponsoring monthly Citizen Science and Photography opportunities throughout the growing season (April-October). Citizen Science utilizes citizens to collect data that can be used in long-term nationwide research. You can contribute to science while you explore the Carolinas! Images submitted will be judged by a panel of Museum staff members and a winner for best photo announced each month. The winning photos may be displayed at the Museum of York County in a fall exhibition. 

For the month of September, our theme is fall flowers! Participate in Citizen Science by taking photos of fall flowers. Share your findings by uploading them to www.inaturalist.org/projects/carolina-biodiversity-myco or email them to rcarter@chmuseums.org by noon on September  29, 2021 to be considered for the photo competition. Be sure to identify the flower and enter your location (city and state).  If you cannot identify your flower, people on iNaturalist can help.

Make plans to join us September 30th at 6 p.m. to discuss fall flowers and announce the winner of the photo contest at https://yorkcountygov.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_Lorgx3CjQGeOF8YWITQvbA.
