Did you know lichens can tell us a lot about the quality of our air? Do you enjoy spending time on National Forest lands?
Join Lichens CitiSci and become a certified volunteer, trained in official air quality biomonitoring protocols using lichens and some basic (and provided) tools.
You can meet some neat folks, work independently or with a friend, and contribute to ongoing scientific research which influences resource management. Additionally, all data collected is added to a national database that helps the US Forest Service track and manage air quality across National Forest lands.
