4 CAST Project

We are using the Nature's Notebook platform to not only facilitate our Pheno-Cam project, but to provide data to the larger scientific community. We are embarking on a long-term data collection and community engagement effort as part of the 4CAST Project (Coastal Climate Change + Community Art, Science and Tradition).  Using Nature's Notebook we seek to engage community volunteers and students in a meaningful way to better understand our changing climate, while providing researchers access to volumes of data which would otherwise be restrictive or nearly impossible to collect themselves.
