The Super Project and the Citizen Scientists that make it happen | Natural History Museum’s Curiosity Show

August 24, 2017

The BioSCAN Project, RASCals (Reptiles and Amphibians of Southern California), SLIME (Snails and slugs Living in Metropolitan Environments), and the Southern California Squirrel Survey have all joined forces to study urban biodiversity in a HUGE way!

E-mail: with your name and address and ask to be put on our email list to be informed about future projects!

Our current project sites are located from the coast all the way to the Inland Empire. While we are done recruiting for the SuperProject for this year, we will begin recruitment for our next project in the second half of 2016. Read on to find out more about what it takes to participate in this project!

What becoming a SuperProject involves
Surveying your yard for 15 minutes, twice a month, for one year, in search of squirrels, reptiles, amphibians, and snails and recording your observations (including submitting photos based on your backyard surveys).

Some participants are chosen to assist with our insect and spider surveys. This includes installation of an insect trap for the collection of insects from your yard for one week each month. SP sites with traps will receive bimonthly visits from an NHM entomologist who will survey your yard and collect spiders for the L.A. County Spider Survey.

This comes from the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County. If no film or link appears in this email, go to the blog to view it by clicking on the blog title above. If the film stops & starts in an annoying manner, press pause (lower left double bars ||) to let it buffer and get ahead of you.  [Chuck Almdale]
