[DNR] New Citizen Scientist volunteers welcome at Monroe Lake, May 18

End Date: 5/11/2013End Time: 11:59 PM
Entry Description
Monroe Lake will hold its quarterly meeting for the Citizen Scientist volunteer program on Saturday, May 18, at 6:30 p.m.

People interested but not yet involved in the program are encouraged to attend.

Citizen Scientist volunteers collect data that help Monroe Lake track animal populations, monitor habitats, and make resource management decisions.

The meeting will be at the activity center in Paynetown State Recreation Area, 4850 S. State Road 446. Attendees should check in at the entrance gatehouse.

The first hour will summarize research by Citizen Scientists during the preceding quarter. Two projects were completed—eagle population monitoring and a spring wildflower survey.

The second hour will introduce the summer research project, monarch butterfly larva monitoring. Volunteers will receive training on monarch butterflies and instruction on data collection. A date also will be selected for a group research day.

People who plan to attend the meeting are encouraged to arrive early for a free cookout at 5 p.m. All food, including a vegetarian option and drinks, and table service will be provided.

Registration for the cookout is required by May 16 to Jill Vance, Monroe Lake naturalist, at jvance@dnr.IN.gov.

Registration is not required for those planning to attend only the meeting.

Monroe Lake is at 4850 South State Road 446, Bloomington, 47401.
