Are you in tune with nature? Do you notice when the first robins return in the spring, or when monarch caterpillars begin to munch on milkweed in late summer or when the first hint of red appears on the trees in autumn? Join us at our Signs of the Seasons Citizen Science Training and learn how to easily turn your observations into valuable data used by scientists to document the impacts of climate change. 

Signs of the Seasons is a citizen science program that trains volunteers to observe and record phenology (seasonal changes) in plants and animals. The work and observations of citizen scientists provides a significant contribution to our understanding of the natural world and how it is changing. Participants will leave with the skills to document observations in their own backyards….. and also here at the Wells Reserve! 

Workshop will be presented by Signs of the Seasons and Wells Reserve staff.

Citizen Science Volunteer Opportunity at the Wells Reserve: This spring the Wells Reserve is embarking on a new long-term (phenology) seasonal monitoring project and we are looking for help making observations! If you enjoy being outside observing nature up-close, we’d love to have you on our monitoring team. It’s also fun to do with a friend so bring them along and you can train together!

Volunteering Details:

  • Attendance at this training is encouraged.
  • Extra training will be provided.
  • If you are unable to attend today’s workshop and/or would like more information, contact Caryn Beiter,, 207-646-1555x110
