Celebrate Earth Day with GLOBE

  • Do GLOBE: Collect and submit data using a GLOBE protocol and to help NASA and other researchers better understand the state of the Earth. Try one of GLOBE’s simple protocols that does not require special equipment, such as a cloud observation or land cover classification.

  • Clean and Plant: Pick up litter while discussing how trash can harm the environment. Plant a tree or some flower seeds and talk about the value of native plants and indigenous species in the global Carbon Cycle.

  • Start a Research Project: Start making observations, asking questions and gathering data for a new GLOBE research project to submit for next year’s IVSS.
