Citizen science at Riera de Ribes

From the CEM we want to contribute to give visibility to the state of Sitges’ natural spaces and their biodiversity while publicizing citizen science experiences in this field.

Citizen science will help us to know the state and environmental evolution of the Ribes stream and some of the tools to sample and monitor its biodiversity. We will observe nature with naked eyes and binoculars; we will identify native species and invasive species; we will take photographs; and we will learn to use the technique of photo trapping, a tool that reveals what happens to nature when we are not there.
