PlantWatch 2016

Do you like to get outside and examine the natural world? Would you like to learn more about plant identification in New Brunswick? Want to become a citizen scientist? Join Nature NB as we help researchers from across Canada in tracking changes in our Natural Environment.

The PlantWatch program enables citizen scientists to get involved by recording flowering times for selected plant species and reporting these dates to researchers, who work to identify ecological changes that may be affecting our environment.

The workshop will include an introduction to plant morphology as well as plant identification basics. Participants will be provided with a plant identification guide and PlantWatch booklet and will receive training to become official PlantWatch participants!

Nature NB is hosting this unique workshop in your area soon!
