Reserve your turf!
Select an area to sample
If you’d like to participate in the bryomonitoring survey, we ask that you reserve the area you would like to sample so that we don’t oversample any one place! We chose the National Topographic System 250k grid to divide up the country.
Grid sizes vary based on their location within Canada, but are approximately 100 km by 150 km. We are hoping to collect samples from up to 5 locations within each grid. If you would like to volunteer to sample more than one location, we suggest selecting sites about 20 km from each other to get the best spatial representation.
Please reserve your grid below, and request a sampling kit to be mailed to you (or make your own, it’s easy!).
Spot your moss
Search for two common species of moss. They’re easy to spot once you know how!
