Caterpillars Count! Citizen Science Project
Greetings Fellow Educators, Citizen Scientists and Biodiversity Enthusiasts!
We would like to invite you to learn more about the citizen science project Caterpillars Count!
Participants conduct surveys on the branches of trees and shrubs to monitor seasonal variation and abundance of arthropods like caterpillars, beetles, and spiders, and to establish critical baseline data for evaluating long term trends.
The project can be easily carried out at:
- Nature and environmental education centers
- Parks and botanical gardens
- School campuses
- Private backyards
Register for one of our free webinars offered in April and learn how to get involved!
In the meantime, do not hesitate to contact us if we can answer any questions. You can reach the team by emailing email@example.com.
And, please, forward this email along to any friends, colleagues or local groups you think may be interested in Caterpillars Count!
May your spring be filled with cool bugs,
