Join us on Citizen Science Saturdays to gather scientific data from the Atlanta BeltLine Arboretum. Our projects will include things like:

1. How to ID trees.

2. How to measure trees using a stick and tape measure.

3. How to find the temperature difference between the canopy of a tree and the middle of the Atlanta BeltLine using an infrared gun.

4. Counting pollinators and plant species on the prairie.

The data we gather will be used to show the benefits and growth of the Atlanta BeltLine Arboretum and Prairie. Citizen Science Saturdays are scheduled monthly with a new project every month. Youth and adult citizen scientists are welcome.
