Bruce Museum hosts Citizen Science Day

The Bruce Museum will host their first ever Citizen Science Day Saturday, June 27, from 1 to 4 p.m., with presentations and activities celebrating their new Citizen Science initiatives.

Free with Museum admission, no reservations required.

Follow along with a visiting ant researcher as we investigate the numerous species on the museum grounds.

Get up close and personal with live turtles and find out how can help map turtles throughout the state.

Learn about the current and upcoming Citizen Science initiatives.

Connecticut Turtle Atlas — Participants in the Connecticut Turtle Atlas collect data on specific locations and abundance of all turtle species found throughout the state. In addition, there will be opportunities to join turtle biologists for field trips and turtle watching.

School of Ants — Help collect data on the distribution of ant species found near your home or in your schoolyard. Maps created from the data can show effects of urbanization, invasive species and even climate change. This project is perfect for individual, family and classroom participation.
