With help from more than 200 volunteers who have been walking and riding around Richmond neighborhoods for the past year, the Science Museum of Virginia’s RVAir program reached the 500th “session” - the term describing the timeframe when someone starts and stops actively recording measurements - almost exactly 12 months after the start of the data collection events!

RVAir is the Museum’s community science project that seeks to understand local air quality, or how clean or polluted the air we breathe is, a priority of the City’s RVAgreen 2050 climate action plan.

So what have we learned so far and what should we do with the information we’ve gathered? Join the RVAir team for a virtual town hall, where we comb through data and make plans for continuing engagement in 2022.

Participants will be entered into a raffle to win 2 free general admission tickets to visit the Science Museum of Virginia.

Choose from the following meeting dates:

  • Wednesday, September 22 from 6:30 – 7:30 p.m.
  • Wednesday, September 29 from 6:30 – 7:30 p.m.

How to Attend

This virtual town hall is FREE to attend, but registration is required. Registration will close 2 hours prior to the meeting start.

You will be sent a link and password to access the talk 1 hour before each meeting.
