John D. MacArthur Beach State Park is using Nature's Notebook to engage a variety of individuals in becoming trained observers at a state park and giving them opportunities to become involved in citizen science projects. Starting observing with our Junior Friends group (middle and high school students) who come monthly to the park. Our hope is for them to gain skills in observing nature and using them in the future in other locations. We also hope to expand this program to general park visitors in the future, park staff, Junior friends, school groups, volunteers, and park visitors.
