What is MeadoWatch? To start with, it's a citizen science program in which volunteers collect phenological data for select species of wildflowers, information which helps scientists determine how ranges and seasons are being affected by climate change. It's also a wonderful excuse for volunteers to hike either of two beautiful trails in Mount Rainier National Park.

This year, MeadoWatch offers three training sessions for new or returning volunteers:
June 1, Wednesday (6:30-8:30 PM); University of Washington, Seattle
June 11, Saturday (9:30-11:30 AM); Mt. Rainier National Park
June 25, Saturday (1:30-3:30 PM); University of Washington, Seattle
If you would like to attend any of these sessions, please RSVP to Janneke Hille Riis Lambers at firstname.lastname@example.org
