Outside Science (inside parks): Hummingbirds–Banding Together in Capulin Volcano National Monument

The Outside Science (inside parks) series shares stories of crucial, creative science. Each episode, produced in collaboration with Colorado State University, highlights the many ways young people are getting involved in science in parks. Part citizen science, part education, these videos cover topics such as sea turtles and light pollution, toxic algal blooms, and mercury levels in dragonfly larvae. Watch this and all the previous episodes on the Explore Nature website.
