The snow has begun falling on Mount Rainier (check out the webcams here) and our MeadoWatch Trails have been taken down for the winter. Thank you all again for participating in MeadoWatch this season and working hard to collect high quality data! We greatly appreciate how involved our volunteers are, giving us feed-back both through emails and notes on data sheets about missing species at plots, missing plot markers, and fun asides. We are making more improvements to MeadoWatch for the upcoming 2017 season and look forward to getting even more of your feed-back.
We are working on entering the data we have received and will give you updates on our analysis results later in the winter. If you are interested in volunteering to enter data, we would love your help! The data entry can be done from the comfort of your own home and you will help us speed along the process so we can bring you the results from the 2016 season sooner! Please send us an email with the subject line "Volunteer data entry" and we'll get in contact with you. Also a friendly reminder, if you have any completed data sheets that you haven't yet turned in, please scan and email or mail them to us. Late data is better than no data! : )
Finally, we will be emailing out an End of Season survey and would love your response. This survey will help us better understand our MeadoWatch community and improve your volunteer experience. We will also post the link to the survey here, on our blog, as well as on our Facebook page (Hey! did you know we have a Facebook group? Just search MeadoWatch in the Facebook search bar or follow this link to join!).
Thank you again for a great season and we look forward to seeing you out on the trails again next year!
All the best,
Your MeadoWatch Team
