I was sent the below letter if you are interested in joining up follow the links in the message...and please credit me as the one who pointed you to the site.

Dear EarthCache Master

Firstly, thank you again for all your support of EarthCaches. It is a wonderful program where we can share in the wonders of the planet.

I am now writing to invite you to become part of a new international citizen science program called EarthTrek. This is a program where you help scientists collect data on real research projects using your GPS and other equipment (camera, calipers etc). By participating you earn points and rewards. You even earn points for every person you introduce to EarthTrek. This is an exciting extension to what you already do with your GPS in the great outdoors. Its free to register and free to participate! I also hope you will feel free to invite your friends, family and neighbors to be part of this exciting and fun program.

The first 1000 people who register to be an EarthTrek participant will receive a package of materials through the mail including a certificate, EarthTrek card and a discount coupon to purchase official EarthTrek calipers.

To find out more information visit the EarthTrek website at www.goearthtrek.com.

EarthTrek is brought to you by the same people who administer EarthCaching and the EarthCache Masters program. Unlike EarthCaching however, EarthTrek will have science projects that you can become involved in from a wide range of sciences.

The first two global projects start on 1 July 2009. In these projects you will assist scientists in Canada, Germany and Australia research Garlic Mustard plants and the weathering rates of gravestones.

I do hope you will consider becoming part of the EarthTrek project!

Kindest regards

Gary


Here is a YouTube video about the first project which involves mapping out Graveyards....hey Marc this is right up your alley....then measuring the weathering of the marble on the headstones.

Just joined myself and will do participating in anything local or regional that I can take part in. Scientific study it very important for the future of our planet and these studies are a testament that these days, there is no reason for any of us not to make some small contribution to the advancement of knowledge and the preservation of the planet! Thanks for getting me hooked in Gary!!!
