WeDigBio! 2019:
Alpine Flowers & Climate Change

NYBG is partnering with leading museums, universities, and environmental organizations around the world to engage the public in citizen science! During WeDigBio! 2019 (October 17–20) we invite your help to mobilize biodiversity data and advance scientific understanding through digitization. Come to our Saturday workshop—or teach yourself to participate from home—and join our virtual expedition to explore historic collections of alpine plants in support of climate change research!
