First D2D conference call

Our first conference call of the season took place on Tues., June 25. The theme of the call was discussing how to start your group off on the right track. There was one adult leader on the call who mentioned the ice cream social they had as a fun way to start their club and get all of the paperwork completed. She's also working on bringing in a wildlife rehabilitator to meet with youth, and set up a bird banding opportunity as a way to incorporate local scientists into the group.

There was only one adult leader on the call, but the next one (Tues., July 9) is happening in the evening at 6:30 p.m. central time, so hopefully more of you will be able to attend and share how your clubs are going. The theme for that phone call will be "How are you training youth on citizen science protocols?" (Or, how are you ensuring data quality?) The call-in number is 424-203-8400 and the pass code is 645698#. The schedule for this summer's conference calls can be found on page 135 (monarch curriculum) and page 111 (bird curriculum).
