Homeschool: Citizen Science

January 15 @ 9:30 am - 11:00 am

Citizen Science is a way for the public to contribute to scientific research by gathering data collectively from many locations. In this class, we’ll participate in the citizen science project FeederWatch through Cornell University. FeederWatch data helps scientists track movements of winter bird populations and trends in bird distribution and abundance. Homeschoolers will be introduced to some common winter birds and then have a chance to become citizen scientists as we monitor the birds at the nature center feeders and document what is seen.

Ages 7 and up.

Time: 9:30 a.m. – 11 a.m.

Cost: $4 per child

Location: Lake St. Clair Metropark, Nature Center – Map Me

Pre-registration is required by January 14.

  • Phone: (586) 463-4332 ext. 2

A Metroparks vehicle pass is required to enter any Metropark.
