Become a Citizen Scientist this Winter

January 13, 2016

As the weather is finally starting to feel like winter, many Minnesotans are looking forward to some outdoor winter fun, while others are curling up indoors and staying warm. Regardless of whether you want to stay inside or venture out into the cold, consider joining a citizen science project and contributing to conservation and our understanding of the environment.

Citizen science is when members of the public become involved in conducting authentic scientific research, and it has a large role in environmental monitoring, meteorology, and studying wildlife and habitat conservation. Many people are familiar with citizen science initiatives like monitoring water quality in local streams or reporting observations of butterflies.  But those activities primarily happen during the summer; what can you do to get involved in citizen science right now?

 

Swap with Do It Green! MN

December 21, 2015

Recently, I was pulling together some data on the 2015 Do It Green! clothing and seed swaps, and I was amazed to see how much success we had this year! Combined, our two swaps had almost 200 people attend, and they brought over 900lbs of clothing! About half of that was swapped, meaning it went home with someone that day, and half was left over and donated to charity. Just thinking about reusing that many pieces of clothing and accessories instead of having them be thrown away puts a smile on my face. After Minnesota law was changed in May to legalize seed sharing, swaps through our Seed Library Project took off as well; we participated in over a dozen community events and sent out 10 starter kits to individuals and community groups who wanted to start their own seed library.
