Can citizen science make Los Angeles a better city? Make California a better state? Can it help us save the world? Join NHMLA this spring in Downtown L.A. for our new Citizen Science + Suds series, in partnership with Angel City Brewery! Each month you’ll learn about projects that rely on community involvement for success. Panelists will share stories, data, and the real-world impacts that happen when you harness the power of the people. Come ready for an interactive and lively conversation-after all, crowd participation is what citizen science is all about.
In the spirit of citizen science we’re creating L.A.’s first ever crowdsourced beer. Attend the events (or join on social media @NatureinLA) to cast your vote for ingredients (Feb 9), a name for the beer (Mar 9), and we’ll enjoy the fruits of OUR labor on April 13.
Program for April 13, 2017
