October 21, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

- Free

Register for this event (https://bit.ly/DebrisTrackerNNLM) for an introduction to citizen science, to learn more about libraries as hubs for citizen science, and to learn how to participate in citizen science projects that study the environment through a presentation and online Q&A.

The Marine Debris Tracker (also known as Debris Tracker) project helps over 25+ organizations collect data about where litter is showing up across the country – not just near water. This data contributes to maps used by researchers working on managing pollution worldwide. Materials are available in a variety of languages to get you tracking.
