Are you passionate about the environment and looking for ways to get involved in science? If you live in or around Rogers City, here’s your chance. Researchers are looking for volunteer citizen scientists to help them save native ecosystems and protect the very rare Hine’s Emerald Dragonfly. There will be a presentation this upcoming Friday, July 24, from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon at the Presque Isle District Library in Rogers City to discuss the opportunity. You will have the chance to…

  • Learn about unique plants, animals and natural communities that occur here including the extremely rare Hine’s emerald dragonfly.
  • Learn how invasive plants threaten these important species and habitats.
  • Become a volunteer “citizen scientist” to help us find Hine’s emerald dragonfly larval habitat and map invasive species at the same time!
  • Get information about future trainings and participate in upcoming field surveys

The event is free to attend, but registration is required by July 23.
