After watching the Earth Day Live: How Citizen Science Can Help Save the Bees Webinar we learned how to get involved. Earth Challenge 2020 lets you gather important scientific data near you. It has two elements for you to measure — air quality and plastic pollution — with more on the way. Without leaving home, millions of users can record the quality of the air outside their window. Users can take readings throughout the day to track how human activity and weather patterns change the air we breathe. Each reading will add to a global database of knowledge and help us understand how our world works and how we can protect it. #doyourpart #EarthChallenge2020 #EarthDayEveryDay #sustainability #regenerativefarming #regenerativeagriculture #landscaping #bayarea #getinvolved ...
