LILRC Webinar: Eclipse Soundscapes Facilitator Training

December 5, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EST

The Eclipse Soundscapes Project is looking to partner with libraries for the upcoming eclipse happening in April 2024. This program will detail how to participate and opportunities for libraries to apply to receive data collection kits.

Eclipse Soundscapes (ES) Project is focused on the following science question: How does life on Earth, specifically wildlife, respond to solar eclipses? ES has put a special focus on developing a project that is accessible and inclusive with a special focus on Blind and Low Vision accessible (BLV) so that members of the BLV community have the opportunity to participate equally and alongside their sighted peers.

Participants will document changes in animal behavior and sounds during the upcoming April 8, 2024 solar eclipse. There are multiple ways to participate and earn certificates: learn about eclipses, observe during an eclipse, collect audio data during eclipse week, and analyze collected data after eclipses. Visit https://eclipsesoundscapes.org<https://eclipsesoundscapes.org/citizen-science-project/> to learn more.
