Citizen Science: Herpetology

Event Details

Date: August 31, 2022
Time: All Day Event
Location: Museum of York County

Event Description:

Join our citizen science project and make a difference for science! By recording your nature observations you help scientists track changes in migration and habitat for animals and plants. Each month we will focus on one type of animal or plant.

For August our subject is herpetology. Simply take a photo of the reptiles or amphibians you see around you. Email your photo to us at citizenscience@chmuseums.org. Contest runs from August 1-31. Include the name of the reptile or amphibian, where, and when you took your photo, along with your name so we can credit your photos. We will upload your contributions to the national database at iNaturalist, and enter your photo in our monthly contest! Winners will be notified by email at the end of each month and their photos will be featured on the Museum’s Facebook page. Winning photos may be displayed in a fall exhibition.
