Dear <<Citizen Scientist Login_Name>>,

Today’s Activity: Document Change at Your Site by Updating Your Map

The power of our citizen-science project lies in our ability to capture change-over-time. You first joined the project about three months ago and there is a good chance something has changed since then. Ask yourself these questions, and if the answer to any is 'yes,' it's time to update your habitat map.

  1. Did I plant anything new?
  2. Did I change my landscape at all? Take out some lawn, or concrete?
  3. Have my practices changed? Are you leaving your leaves on-site instead of raking and bagging them? Have you decreased your use of pesticides? Are you managing for natives by controlling invasives?
  4. Have I purchased or built anything new recently? A rain barrel? New nestbox? Electric mower?
