Picture Post Newsletter: An Opportunity for Outreach


The Picture Post environmental monitoring project is a citizen science initiative funded byNASA to create opportunities for informal and formal science educators and thecommunity‐at‐large to collaborate by sharing digital photographs from Picture Post sites.The purpose of our project was to develop a newsletter to serve the Picture Postcommunity. The newsletter includes information about the Picture Post website, examplesof how members are using images from their Posts, and a space for the community torespond and offer suggestions. The newsletter arose from requests for feedback by picturepost users, and will provide an opportunity for outreach to and interaction within thecommunity.
