Mystic River Watershed Association will offer a Citizen Scientist Training Workshop on Wednesday, June 13th, 6-8pm in Somerville. This Workshop allows interested volunteers to learn about water quality monitoring methods and concepts. By completing this workshop, you’ll be prepared to join MyRWA’s Baseline Monitoring Program. The Baseline Monitoring Program requires a monthly commitment between 6am and 8am. No experience is necessary – all are welcome!

The Union of Concerned Scientists is launching the 2012 UCS Science and Democracy Editorial Cartoon Contest. We’re seeking cartoons that explore the complex relationship between science and democracy in America.
Twelve cartoons will be selected as finalists to be featured in the 2013 UCS Science and Democracy Calendar. Then, we’ll ask the public to choose the best cartoon, which will go on the calendar’s cover. Each artist who submits an entry that is chosen as a finalist will receive a cash prize.
Check out the contest web page for more information about entering and guidance on relevant topic areas. You can also see some wonderful cartoons from our previous contests.
