Subject: Leeds & Grenville iNat project and job opportunity with A2A!
Date: Thu, 4 May 2023 20:28:59 +0000
From: Katherine Black <kath...@blazingstar.ca
We're excited to let you know that we've just launched an iNaturalist
project to record wildlife observations on County roads in Leeds &
Grenville! The project can be accessed here
We've started conducting road surveys as part of a study led by A2A
Collaborative that aims to reduce wildlife-vehicle collisions in the
United Counties of Leeds and Grenville. We'll be using iNaturalist to
record our observations and encourage you and other interested parties
to do the same. This project is primarily focused on turtles, snakes,
and species at risk, but we welcome observations of all organisms in
close proximity to County roads. Using iNaturalist will allow our data
to be easily accessed by other researchers in the area, encourages
participation by local naturalists and other interested people, and
provides a strong foundation for a related citizen science project that
A2A hopes to conduct next year.
A2A is hiring an Environmental Monitoring Technician to help with this
study. Please see the attached job ad and feel free to circulate to your
networks. Note that the closing date is this Friday, May 5 (tomorrow!),
but we'll be extending the deadline if we don't land a candidate.
Thanks for your time and support!
