We're hitting the beaches and hitching boat rides to make aerial images of the gulf oil spill's effects using cameras attached to balloons and kites.

2013 Public Lab Barnraising in Cocodrie, Louisiana

Posted by Jeffrey Yoo Warren (Creator)

Hello everyone - it's been a long time, but I wanted to reach out to invite you all -- who helped us get our start before Public Lab even existed -- to a fun event in Louisiana this October 4-6. 

As many of you know, in the past three years, our community has grown into a broader DIY environmental movement and network known as Public Lab. In one month, members of the global Public Lab community will be meeting up at our third annual conference, called the "Public Lab Barnraising" -- at a research station in the wetlands of Cocodrie, Louisiana. We'd love it if you'd join us! 

Dormitories are available, and the 3-day event will include unconference-style sessions, workshops, brainstorming sessions, outdoor activities like boating, kiting, ballooning, and other fun forms of DIY environmental research (not to mention late-night fishing on the dock). The Barnraising is free to attend, and lodging is an affordable $20/night. This year's theme is education

When: October 4-6, 2013 (Friday, Saturday, Sunday) 

Register today:
