March Meeting -Journey North
March 17 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Each spring, migratory species travel hundreds of miles to breeding areas in northern U.S. and Canada. In the fall, these migratory species make their way south again to overwintering ranges in Mexico and Central America. Journey North is a crowdsourced science program that harnesses the power of thousands of volunteers across North America to gain insights into annual life cycle of these migratory species, including Monarch Butterflies and various species of Hummingbirds. With population declines among migratory birds and Monarch Butterflies, Journey North seeks to help researchers, land managers and the general public understand how migratory species respond to a changing climate by tracking their journeys each year.
All observational data are shared widely via Journey North’s real-time maps, which paint a picture of how the migration is moving through the U.S and Canada from year-to-year.
Join this webinar to learn about how you can help to better understand the migration by getting involved in Journey North.
Ms. Nancy A. Sheehan, the Journey North program coordinator at the University of Wisconsin-Madison Arboretum, has worked at the intersection of science and community outreach for more than three decades. She believes in the collective power of individuals working together to create change for the good and, to this day, remains passionate about volunteerism, citizen science and participatory research.
You are invited to a Zoom meeting.
