Nerds for Nature has launched a Citizen Science campaign encouraging crowd-sourced information and images that will help them monitor the more than 3,000 acres around the summit of California’s Mount Diablo that burned in the Morgan Fire in September 2013.
Fire is a natural part of the mountain’s ecology, and many plants actually require fire to reproduce, according to the group of environmentalists/technologists. Nerds is reaching out to people visiting Mount Diablo State Park to help them monitor how the landscape is changing and recovering after the fire by taking pictures from fixed locations for 1 year after the fire.
Data already collected can be viewed in a Google Spreadsheet.
