MN Zoo - SES Citizen Science team

MN Zoo - SES Citizen Science team and Nature's Notebook are working together to collect data on a few key species in the habitats around the school.  Using Nature's Notebook to introduce Citizen Science to campers in the MN Zoo program and School of Environmental Studies students.  Also hope to raise awareness for how climate change is affecting the plants and animals in the area. 7-9th grade campers in the MN Zoo programs and School of Environmental Studies students (11th and 12th grade) and some staff will be collecting observations. The plan is to have SES students make observations during the school year (Spring and Fall) and Zoo campers during the summer (June - August).
