Signs of the Seasons Training

Friday, May 10, 10 a.m. - 12 p.m.

Co-hosted with Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens, Maine Sea Grant will offer in-person volunteer training for the Signs of the Seasons citizen science program. Participants will learn about the goals of the program, learn how to make scientific observations of phenology (the study of cyclic and seasonal changes of plants and animals), practice making phenology observations on the grounds of the Gardens, and leave with the tools and knowledge needed to set up their own site to observe and record changes in phenology in their own yard or community. Questions about this opportunity may be directed to Beth Bisson, at or Keri Kaczor, at

Hosted in the Bosarge Family Education Center at Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens
