Scientists from the GLOBAL Bryophyte & Lichen Thematic Collections Network (TCN) and around the world need your help! 

Join us in transcribing scientific label data from our collections using online tools. GLOBAL Bryophyte & Lichen TCN WeDigBio events will be held online daily from Friday, October 15th–Saturday, October 16th.

You will be part of a worldwide effort to digitize centuries of data about life on Earth. The GLOBAL Bryophyte & Lichen TCN Team is currently imaging bryophytes and lichens collected around the world over the past 150+ years, housed at 25 universities, museums, and gardens located across the United States. The GLOBAL Bryophyte & Lichen TCN WeDigBio Event will focus on transcribing specimens from six of these collections. Participants will have an opportunity to meet scientists, join in on behind-the-scenes tours, and hear talks about the significance of scientific collections!

WeDigBio is ideal for teens aged 15+ and adults.
