GO on a Trail - Citizen Science Challenge
June 1, 2019 - September 2, 2019
How it Works:
Download the App
Take observations of your surroundings using the app. There are three ways to earn points by taking Land Cover observations.
4 Points: Find an OBSERVATION STATION. Be sure to capture the station in your “down” photo. Observations at these stations provide valuable calibration information to scientists.
2 Points: Find designated points along the trail and take observations within the vicinity. Be sure to stay on the trail, and do not enter private property or dangerous areas. View a map of these points here. Scientists are particularly interested in studying these areas.
1 Point: Take an observation anywhere along the trail.
Share Your Observations
Remember to submit your observations in order to earn points. Your observations will be shared with researchers and other citizen scientists. Participants who collect the most points will receive a certificate and prize package.

As you collect data, remember:
Leave no trace, take only observations.
GO on a trail... and STAY on it. By staying on marked trails, you are protecting sensitive ecosystems and reducing your risk of coming into contact with dangerous plants and animals.
