Citizen Science


Citizen science is hands on, volunteer-based research where everyday people collect environmental data to help answer scientific questions. Citizen science projects can be particularly useful to gather local data and statistics to feed into formal monitoring programs.

Citizen science is a great way to actively participate and get involved in local community projects. Below are just a sample of citizen science projects that are waiting for your input!
