Citizen Science in Easterhouse!
Yes, TCV Green Gym in Easterhouse have been trying out some bug surveying techniques throughout 2013, to gather those all important records and become citizen scientists. From meadow sweeping and woodland surveying, all the way through to pond dipping and freshwater kick sampling, they’ve done the lot.
With the combined work of Julie Wilson (TCV Green Gym coordinator) and Paul Gunn (TCV Natural Communities trainee working with Buglife), the Easterhouse guys were presented with new tasks as part of their normal session to see if citizen science could be a fun, exciting and educational addition.
And this proved to be the case, but don’t take our word for it, take it from the guys themselves – https://vimeo.com/83490903
