<http://www.neosec.dreamhosters.com/cnc-2017-boston/> (CNC) taking place April
14-18, 2017! The CNC is a citizen science competition among 16 cities
across the U.S. to see which urban area can document the most species in
this 5-day period in an effort to map local biodiversity.
The Boston CNC is a large area bounded by Rt 495 to the north and west, and
extends to include important marine areas. It is being coordinated by the
New England Ocean Science Education Collaborative, Brandeis University,
Encyclopedia of Life (MCZ/Harvard), MIT, and New England Aquarium. Many
other local organizations are hosting events or are opening their locations
up as “destinations” for people to go and observe nature.
