Activities all related to initiating and coordinating our Broadbands’ participation in the existing Mountain Studies Institute’s Bighorn Sheep Citizen Science Project – reading, website familiarization, documentation of how to use iNat application, writing outreach email, talking to partners and agency personnel, reconnaissance, preparation poster mock-up, and map info for MSI website.
One of our newest members has taken on coordinating this project with motivation and gusto! She is amazing and we are moving forward with widespread communication among members and partners as well as a new avenue in which to engage our agency partners.
