Help participants submit their data - Citizen Science Contest
HELP PARTICIPANTS SUBMIT THEIR DATA
Background: Project BudBurst engages the public in making careful observations of phenophases, such as first leafing, first flower, and first fruit ripening. Scientists compare this valuable environmental information to historical records and learn about the prevailing climatic characteristics in a region over time.
The Problem: Prospective and current volunteers are often unsure if they have correctly identified plants and phenophases. This may lead to them not submit the data they've collected. Other volunteers simply forget to add their data.
The Challenge: Find a way to encourage and remind participants to submit data after making field observations.
