Participant Science = SeasonSpotter.org

You can help study the impacts of changing climates by spotting seasonal features of plants.

Zooniverse has started a new project: Season Spotter. “Season Spotter is asking volunteers to help identify changes in plants, shrubs, and trees over the seasons, so we can better understand the impact of climate change on vegetation. The project’s images are of landscapes, taken by more than 200 elevated automatic cameras from across North America, and include forests, grasslands, wetlands, dry shrubland, and tundra. It is a collaboration between Harvard University, the U.S. National Ecological Observatory Network, and the Zooniverse.”

The questions seem very repetitive ...

Signing in and registering is suggested but not required.

Check it out. It may be just the project your family has been looking for!





Two Ways to Classify Images

By identifying images with changing leaves, blooming flowers, and other easy-to-recognize features, you will contribute to a better understanding of how plants are responding to climate change.
