Citizen science is a big part of what we do at Prairie Ridge, so we welcome one and all to our weekly citizen science walks!  These Saturday morning adventures will introduce you to a citizen science project and enlist your help collecting and entering data as you enjoy a walk around the grounds with one of our naturalists.  Topics will vary from week to week, and may include gathering data on tree and garden budding/blooming, pond dragonflies, ladybugs, or birds.  Come once or come every week, we're happy to show you how YOU can contribute to science as a citizen scientist! 

Everyone is welcome, but these walks are best suited to ages 8 and up.  Contact Chris Goforth at 919.707.8882 or chris.goforth@naturalsciences.org for more information.

If you would like to bring a group of 10 or more people, please contact Chris to schedule your visit!  Advanced notice helps us ensure we have sufficient staff and materials on hand to give your group the best possible experience.
