From coastal to upland, and into freshwater habitats, the Vital Signs community has had a productive spring. We had participation from grades 3-12 and also had some amazing work done by citizen scientists/students in their spare time!

Here is the data from Spring 2016:

Spring 2016 - 159 observations, 367 comments, 26 active experts, 143 active citizen scientists, 54 active educators, 208 student teams

Vital Signs users contributed to Field Missions about vernal pools, red pine scale, and water quality bioassesment, just to name a few. We are so thrilled to see all this great data being added to the database.
