Wings in windowsills: restoring habitat with community science

The Chicago Field Museum partners with the community on a variety of science projects, including an effort to restore the Eastern Monarch Butterfly population (which has declined 80% in the past two decades). We sit down with Mark Johnston and Karen Klinger, GIS analysts for the museum, and discuss how they employ community science to gather data, restore habitats, and raise awareness of conservation issues in Chicago and beyond.

Listen to our latest episode to learn about applied GIS and conservation at the Field Museum, understand how  ArcGIS Survey123 and ArcGIS Hub are used to deploy community science projects, and so much more.
