Enjoy wildlife and the outdoors? Get involved in protecting and preserving wildlife! Join us at the Kellogg Environmental Center for a special evening with guest speaker Michelle Duong of Yale University as we thank our volunteers and welcome new ones! Come to the Kellogg Environmental Center in Derby on Thursday, April 27, 2017, from 6:30PM to 8:00PM and learn about current and new volunteer opportunities.
The Kellogg Environmental Center offers a variety of volunteer and citizen science projects that involve monitoring wildlife, educating the public, and maintaining park trails. The Kellogg staff will share the findings of its winter citizen science project, Project FeederWatch, and announce the schedule for its spring and summer opportunities. Guest speaker Michelle Duong, the Project Coordinator for Map of Life, will present a new citizen science project and explain the use of its app to help with wildlife inventory and studies. Map of Life is a project by Yale University and the University of Florida that gathers species data worldwide to preserve biodiversity and prevent extinction. The American Association of School Librarians awarded it the Best App for Teaching and Learning in 2016.
