Citizen Science: Using Technology for Research in Manitoba

March 19 2021

Chris Friesen, Coordinator of the Manitoba Conservation Data Centre with the Government of Manitoba, introduced us to the world of community science in Manitoba using the iNaturalist app.

Community science is public participation in scientific research by everyday people. By making observations in nature and documenting your findings with the iNaturalist app, you can make a difference in our local knowledge base and decision making.

Safe at Home Lunch and Learns

Nature has been here for us during the pandemic.

Parks became a refuge for people seeking safe spaces to escape the stress of the world. Provincial campsites were fully booked on summer weekends. Trails were so popular parking lots overflowed onto highways.

CPAWS Manitoba wants to maintain this positive connection to nature by providing a space for Manitobans to connect online from the safety of our homes and be inspired by nature in our backyards and beyond.

Join CPAWS Manitoba for weekly lunch and learn presentations from experts across the province who will share their knowledge and passion and bring new nature-inspired activities into our lives.
