Community Outreach Program Goes Nationwide
The BloomSky Community Outreach Program goes nation-wide. We are offering a BloomSky weather station to areas throughout the country in an effort to bring communities together.
Update March 2, 2016: After a very successful “Round 1” our initial weather station giveaway through the Community Outreach Program has concluded. However, please still apply so that we have your application on file for when we restart, and follow us on Facebook & Twitter for updates!
In October 2015, we announced the launch of our Community Pilot Program in California. In just under one month, we added approximately 250 devices to the BloomSky network.
The new additions feature views of Lake Tahoe, Yosemite National Park, Kings Canyon National Park, and San Francisco. In addition to the new locations, BloomSky formed an exciting new partnership with NatureBridge – an educational nonprofit bringing students to our National Parks for an immersive learning experience.
We’re also very excited about joining with Giovanni from Nevada County Weather. His BloomSky weather camera is an important tool in his report of the local weather, and has proven to be a very popular station. We are happy to work with someone who has such an enthusiastic following among his neighboring residents.
Growing, Growing, Gone…
Given the success of the Pilot, we’re thrilled to expand the program throughout the U.S. and Canada. Our goal is to work with our existing network of BloomSky users – such as yourselves – to support local weather reporters, organizations, nonprofits, and community leaders by providing them with free BloomSky stations.
If you’re interested in hosting a BloomSky Weather Station, and have at least 20 community members who will be eager to follow your BloomSky Weather Report through the free iOS or Android app, you can apply here. Applications must be submitted by February 3rd, 2016.
Though the program is only available in the United States and Canada right now, we still welcome international applications to measure prospective locations for future programs.
We’re excited to hear from you, and are eager to connect with new weather enthusiasts to grow the BloomSky network!
