Help Auburn University tackle the Marble Bowl and make a contribution to science
You can help record local ecosystems while you get ready for this year’s Iron Bowl.
As anticipation builds for the Iron Bowl, make a difference documenting wild plants, animals (not including pets), fungi, and other organisms. Your time and effort will help Auburn University win the Marble Bowl. That’s right – the Marble Bowl.
And all you need is your smartphone.
You can take unique observations of nature with your phone and upload them online where Auburn will receive points to win against the other university.
All observations must be taken in the state of Alabama until Nov. 27, 2022.
