All programs will begin at 6:30pm in the Imo Brown Complex in the Beverly Brown Coates Auditorium. For members of Hilltop, CANPS and LMNGBR the fee is $5 per program, $10 for non-members, pay at the door (cash, checks, and credit cards are accepted).

Citizen science allows people of all ages to participate in sound science, learn, and network with other like-minded individuals in their communities. We will discuss the many forms citizen science can take and how to get involved. Programs highlighted will include FrogWatch USA™, The Great Backyard Bird Count, and Monarch Watch. From birds, butterflies, and frogs there's a citizen science for you!
