Call for video abstracts   

Member Programs: submit a Climate Change Observations VIDEO!

Similar to last year, members are invited to submit a short (6 minutes max this year) video addressing the prompt, “How is climate change affecting your state and how is your program responding to those changes?” The deadline to submit a video is Thursday, September 16th, 2021. Videos must be pre-recorded and submitted in advance. Videos will be shown “live” online during the conference, followed by Q&A with the program representatives.  This is an excellent opportunity to participate in the conference. 

If you have any questions please contact


  • We encourage you to create a FUN, INTERESTING, and EDUCATIONAL video! Show us some interesting ecosystems, plants, animals, geologic, or historical features in your region. What would other “naturalists” across the country want to learn about climate change at your location?
  • Be CREATIVE and RESOURCEFUL; recruit some charismatic and energetic “hosts” to guide us on a tour. Keep it natural - outdoor, interactive, unscripted, and live-action videos are preferred; narrated PowerPoint slides can be utilized strategically, and it is OK to clip together a “slide-show” of high-quality photo images, or multiple videos from different volunteers around your state.
  • NOTE: It is absolutely OK to use some existing video clips, but this should not be solely an existing ‘promo' or 'recruitment' video for your program; remember the audience  and the prompt


  • 1 video submission per attending organization; all organizations are encouraged to submit. 
  • 6 minutes max for full-length climate change observations.
  • Q&A will take place live online during the conference
  • At least 1 representative from the program should plan to be in “attendance” during the Climate Change Observations session in which the video will be shown.
  • Please use one of the following digital video formats: MP4, MOV, MPEG4, AVI. Videos will be uploaded to the ANROPS YouTube channel for public viewing.
  • If using music, please use public domain music, as to not infringe on anyone’s copyrights, or get permission from the artist and note that at the end of your video (if using your own original music, please share that info either at the end or the beginning of your workshop video).
  • Clearly introduce your program and location at the beginning of the video.
  • Remember the purpose is to provide professional learning for a diverse group. Please be inclusive in your language. Please be mindful of what may be in the background of your video as well and make sure you are presenting ANROSP, yourself, your program, and your community in a positive light.

Submitting Your Video:

  • Please email Eliot Freutel at to coordinate uploading your video via a google drive link, Box account, etc.
  • Deadline to upload your video is Thursday, September 16th, 2021, earlier uploads are encouraged.
