Spring is a great time to become a citizen scientist!  In this program, you will learn how to identify some of North Carolina’s common trees and shrubs as we tour the Prairie Ridge grounds.  Along the way, you’ll also learn how you can contribute to science as a citizen scientist by making simple observations of trees and shrubs anywhere, even right in your own backyard!  Dress for the weather, and if you have an Android or Apple smartphone, bring it along.  If not, no problem!  We’ll send you home with everything you need to start collecting data.  For more information or to register please contact Chris Goforth at 919.707.8882 or
