Citizen Science projects are a great way to learn more about local plants, animals, and ecosystems, including ones in your own backyard. By becoming a citizen scientist, you are contributing data to important scientific investigations that would not be possible without your help and the help of thousands of other citizen scientists. It’s easy, it’s fun and it’s open to citizens of all ages. Here are just a few you could help out with. We will highlight a new project once a month, so stop back and check it out.
