Today (19 Feb) Trees Challenge 2020: Make Every Tree Count – Training Webinar
In order to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Earth Day and the 25th anniversary of The GLOBE Program, GLOBE Observer is hosting a month-long citizen science challenge in April 2020. Volunteers are invited to measure the height of as many different trees as possible throughout the month using the Trees Tool in the GLOBE Observer app. The individuals, schools, and registered teams that measure the most trees will be recognized as top observers in the challenge.
A package of resources to support informal educators and GLOBE schools is being assembled. The package includes information about trees and NASA science, connections to local tree science relevant to your community, ideas about how to manage a Trees Challenge, learning activities, and other resources. This package will be introduced in a training webinar on 19 February, from 2:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. EST (19:00 to 20:30 UTC). The webinar will be recorded and provided for reference on this page.
