Seventh Generation Supper: Citizen Science

Join Transition Fidalgo & Friends for a community supper on Tuesday, March 27, at 5:45 pm at the Anacortes Senior Center, 1701 22nd St.

Our presentation this evening is, “You too can be a scientist! Citizen science projects in the Salish Sea,” by Betsy Carlson, the Citizen Science Coordinator for the Port Townsend Marine Science Center. She designs and coordinates Citizen Science projects, trains volunteers, and oversees the center’s data management.

Since our beginnings, humans have learned by observation and experimentation. Today, the practice of citizen science (or participatory science) is taking off throughout the world, and some of the most successful projects began right here in the Salish Sea.  Betsy will share an overview of some of the projects being conducted in Puget Sound today and a perspective on why citizen science is so important in today's economy and climate. Come be inspired by Betsy’s knowledge and experience, and get motivated to join the Citizen Science workshop at FutureFest on April 21-22.

Open to all and welcome; no reservations necessary. Suggested supper donation $5/adult; $3/10 and under.  Please bring your own place settings, or simply join us for the presentation around 7:00. Seventh Generation Suppers include a sharing time and programs to help build local resilience and reduce carbon dependency. For more information, visit
