Peter Chen Presents “Citizen Science at Home”
As we head into winter and isolation, we can pursue citizen science indoors with online activities; these offer opportunities to expand our knowledge and to collaborate with experts in fields of our interest. Peter Chen, a retired genetics researcher, software engineer, science educator at College of DuPage and long time Wild Ones member will focus on two web sites: iNaturalist and Wikipedia – including the page for Wild Ones. If time allows, additional discussions can include eBird, BugGuide, and various Facebook groups. Peter can touch on topics such as keystone species, pollinators, etc., as he discusses what iNaturalist and Wikipedia have taught him. Peter’s home page, https://peterchen.nicerweb.com/, has links to his contributions to iNaturalist and Wikipedia (including the Wild Ones page).
This event will be hosted on Zoom. A link to the Zoom meeting will be sent out in our newsletter the week of the event. If you have any questions on attending, please contact [email protected].
