An ELI Public Workshop

Participatory science groups can be valuable partners in the collection and/or interpretation of wetland data. Remote sensing provides new opportunities but may require additional time, funds, and skillsets many programs do not have. To promote creative collaboration between participatory science groups and wetlands programs, the Environmental Law Institute presents Bridging Remote Sensing, Participatory Science, and Wetlands Programs. This workshop will focus on how the strategic integration of remote sensing and participatory science has the potential to support state, tribal, and local wetland programs while also allowing volunteers the flexibility to help from their backyards or a computer across the world. Speakers will cover practical topics such as:

  • Emerging technologies at the intersection of remote sensing, wetlands, and participatory science
  • Benefits and challenges of using participatory science and remote sensing to contribute to wetland programs, such as monitoring, enforcement, and education
  • Best practices for collecting, assembling, and incorporating remote sensing/participatory science data into programming

To Be Announced

Materials will be posted as they are received.
