River Herring: A Citizen Science Project

I was recently reading the March/April 2021 issue of “Science Scope” a publication of the National Science Teaching Association. In this issue, I read the section “Citizen Science” written by Jill Nugent.  Jill wrote an article entitled “The Return of the River Herring.”

The Mystic River Herring Education Project is an online citizen science project with a user-friendly website full of information and resources.  To engage in the citizen science project, student will visit the project home page and watch short video clips of migrating river herring.  They will count the number of river herring that they observe swimming from right to left on the screen.  To learn more, visit:
