Where: Hospice of the Panhandle, Kearneysville

When: Wednesday, March 11, 2015

Time: 7:00 PM

Topic: eMammal Citizen Science Project

Cost: free

Speaker: Megan Baker-Whatton, Citizen Science Coordinator

Our monthly program for March will feature a presentation about the "eMammal" citizen science project.

The program will be held at 7:00 p.m. Wednesday, March 11 at the Hospice of the Panhandle facility in Kearneysville.

The speaker will be Megan Baker-Whatton, who is the citizen science coordinator of the eMammal project at the Smithsonian Institution's Conservation Biology.
She will provide an overview of the e-Mammal project, which links citizen volunteers with researchers at the Smithsonian Institution and the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences to document mammals throughout the mid-Atlantic region, and soon, the entire country.
Project volunteers place infrared-activated cameras in parks and other natural areas. The resulting photos help researchers answer questions about mammal distribution and abundance and assist conservation efforts.

Admission is free, no registration is needed and everyone is welcome to attend.
