Seminar Series - USGS EcoLunch

USGS EcoLunch is a forum for students, researchers, visiting scientists and collaborators in the environmental sciences to present their current and past work. Presentations will range from brown bag discussions of ongoing projects to more formal and polished seminar presentations.

Upcoming 2015 Seminar

Date: Tuesday, March 31st
Time: 12:00 pm MDT

Speaker(s): Erin Clark, Yellowstone Program Manager, Ecology Project International

Title: Citizen science delivers in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem

Abstract: The questions researchers would like to pursue never dwindle, yet budgets and staff rarely keep pace. Engaging citizen scientists can be an avenue for making intensive data collection and long-term monitoring possible. Erin Clark, from the non-profit organization Ecology Project International, will share an approach to citizen science in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem that has helped build data sets for scientists from the U.S. Forest Service, U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, and National Park Service, while simultaneously building goodwill with Montana and Idaho communities.
