Here’s information I received about two free, upcoming webinars from STAR Net that will help you get ready for Earth Day 2020 – or any other celebration of our planet that you decide to do at your library! These webinars will cover programming ideas, free resources, and facilitation tips for bringing citizen science and Earth science programs to your library.
These webinars reference STAR Net’s “Our Planet: EARTH” campaign. You don’t have to have sign up or register for anything (although signing up for this campaign is completely free and full of free programming resources!!) to attend these webinars, other than the actual webinar registration itself. The webinars will be recorded and archived for later viewing.

This April, Citizen Science Month and the 50th anniversary of Earth day will coincide, leading to a world of opportunities for STEAM engagement at your library. By hosting Earth science programs that are age inclusive, you can help patrons see your library as a place for engaging family learning. Join the STAR Library Network and guest presenter Jenny Shonk (Finger Lakes Library System, NY) for this sixty minute webinar that will showcase hands-on, multi-generational programming ideas with an Earth science twist. In addition to going over tips, ideas, and resources, we’ll also turn to you – the audience – for a facilitated discussion so that we can all “beg, borrow, and steal” multi-generational programming ideas, resources, and expertise from each other!
