Inaugural talk in the 2019-2020 nature Talks:
Over, Under and Through – A Closer Look at Nature
“Incredible Journeys: The New Science of Bird Migration”
Thursday, September 19th, the Mississippi Valley Field Naturalists launches its 2019-2020 speaker series, “Over, Under and Through – A Closer Look at Nature”. Our first speaker in the series will be Pamela Stagg.
Pamela’s presentation “Incredible Journeys: The New Science of Bird Migration will focus on how citizen scientists, high tech scientists and researchers are combining their efforts to look into the mysterious and gruelling journeys that migratory birds take. When NASA, the Nature Conservancy and ordinary people, “citizen scientists”, collaborate to study and help conserve birds, the results are extraordinary.
For those who like to “read ahead”, the following link will introduce you to Ebird. The largest citizen-science project in the world.
