    Name: Citizen Science Workday
    Date: February 17, 2018
    Time: 9:00 AM - 11:00 AM EST
    Make a difference at Virginia Key North Point with Frost Science
    Event Description:

    Join Frost Science as we work on several citizen science activities at the Virginia Key North Point restoration site including:

    • Marine Debris Cleanup: Volunteers collect trash from the beach and log each item using Marine Debris Tracker, a free smartphone and tablet app.
    • Biodiversity Monitoring: Volunteers observe newly planted trees throughout our restoration site as well as observing native wildlife. Observations may be logged with iNaturalist – another smartphone app.
    • Invasive Plant Documentation and Removal: Invasive plants will be removed from the site to make way for native vegetation.

    Taking place on the second Saturday of each month, Citizen Science Workdays are excellent opportunities to make an immediate impact on the environment by investing your time in one of our several restoration projects. Volunteers must only commit to a single workday at a time but can choose to do so regularly.
