E&H Alumni Partners with Community Organizations for the Sake of Science

Posted by Monica Hoel
E&H teamed up with the Holston Rivers Chapter of Virginia Master Naturalist and the Smyth County Public Libraries to do an online educational event that challenged us to step away from our computer screens.

The Emory & Henry Alumni Office, the Holston Rivers Chapter of Virginia Master Naturalist, and the Smyth County Public Libraries teamed up for a project that gave us a chance to learn before heading outdoors.

The events centered around learning about citizen science. The town of Saltville, Virginia, provided a great location to learn fascinating natural history and record interesting observations.

You can see recordings of all three programs (linked below) and you can follow the citizen science project posted on the data platform called iNaturalist; the project is named “Holston Rivers Virginia Master Naturalist Saltville Well Fields 2021.”

Here are links the events related to the project:
