April

Maine Big Night – Citizen Science Project
April 9th – May 7th
Volunteers are invited to join Runamuk Acres in this statewide citizen science project. On the first Big Night in the month of April, our farm steward and other participating family and community members, will gather alongside the road at the edge of our farm’s vernal pool. We will collect data for scientists, and help amphibians safely cross the road. Email us to join our team of citizen scientists to participate. OR contact the farm to borrow safety gear and data collection materials, and create your own team! Click here to learn more, or to adopt your own site today.
