June 1, 2017 -- Volunteers and Study Sites Needed For Inland Empire Air Quality Study!


We’re teaming up with scientists at UC Riverside and Earthwatch Institute to better understand how our urban landscapes may impact air temperature and air quality, and we’re looking for community members to help us with this research. You can participate as a community scientist by doing one, two, or all of the following: • Host an air temperature sensor or ozone sensor at your home, school, or community garden • Monitor indoor/outdoor temperature and humidity at your site • Record and map the habitat around the sensors using the Habitat Network platform During this two hour training our goals are to: • Learn more about your local air temperature and air quality observations • Provide you with the tools and skills necessary to help contribute data to the study from your own home, office, school, or community garden.
