MacroBlitz: Citizen Science at the Next Level

April 20 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Come learn about what NJSOC offers teachers and students and MacroBlitz, a new National Geographic project that inspires citizen scientists.

Who doesn’t love field trips?

The NJ Science Teachers Assocation, the Alliance for the NJ Environmental Education and the NJ School of Conservation invite you to the NJSOC to learn about our resources for teachers and students and try MacroBlitz, a new National Geographic Society project.

The NJSOC has inspired students, teachers and researchers for 75 years. Come visit the beautiful campus in the heart of Stokes State Forest to learn why. You’ll explore the site and learn about the innovative work being done in field research, climate education and teacher professional development.

The second part of the day will feature MacroBlitz, a new National Geographic initiative that will empower citizen scientists to document aquatic macroinvertebrates using the iNaturalist App. Educators will hunt for stream insects in the Flatbrook River and learn how to document their findings in iNaturalist.

Participants will leave as members of MacroBlitz, with new field skills and tools for engaging students and a new appreciation for the aquatic underworld.

This fun, outdoor day will include a campus tour, hands-on (and instream) workshop and lunch.

10am- Arrival & Welcome
