National Citizen Science Day

Saturday, April 13, 2019

Join us for the Fourth Annual Citizen Science Day, a nationally organized event to increase awareness of citizen science and help volunteers discover projects that contribute to the documentation of Earth’s biodiversity. Take action with a wide range of activities, including bird, phenology, and urban naturalist tours, and so much more.

For Families: Kids Count!

11 a.m.–4 p.m.
Everett Children’s Adventure Garden

Learn about a teen-led, three-season project to document leaf, flower, and fruit development in native plants growing in the Adventure Garden. Venture out to observe the pussy willow, a harbinger of spring. The data you gather contributes to the National Phenology Network’s efforts to collect, store, and share phenology data and information worldwide.
