School-Based Weather Station Network
This year we are celebrating the 10th anniversary of the School-Based weather station network. Since the first station was installed on Strawberry Vale Elementary in March, 2005 the network has expanded to 165 different locations, including schools in all school districts on Vancouver and the Gulf Islands.
Averaging 600 000 visits per month, the weather station network and its maintenance have been funded exclusively from external funds I received from a number of granting councils, together with a lot of volunteer hours. Unfortunately, since getting elected as the BC Green MLA for Oak Bay Gordon Head, I no longer have access to these external funds. At present, the Weather Station network has enough funding to continue operations until June 30, 2016.
To ensure the network can continue beyond that date I am working with the University of Victoria to find sustainable solutions.
To help create a complete picture of the many ways in which students, scientists, and community members and organisations are using this network, please consider sharing your stories with us at email@example.com.
Thank-you for your continued support.
