WeDigBio: Chicago
October 18-21, 2018


Join us for a citizen science transcription blitz! Have you ever wondered what’s inside the cabinets at a natural history museum? Are you curious about how scientists use natural history collections to track deadly diseases, discover the history of life, and predict the effects of climate change on biodiversity? WeDigBio, or Worldwide Engagement for Digitizing Biocollections, is a global event that engages curious people like you both online and onsite in digitizing natural history collections.

The Nature Museum is excited to bring WeDigBio to Chicago for the fourth year in a row, and with your help, we can make our own natural history collections data available for anyone to use! 

Stay tuned to learn more about upcoming WeDigBio transcription events at the Nature Museum.
