Citizen science opportunities

There are many local, national, and international programs where you can collect data, submit it and learn from the collected information. These can be group or individual endeavors, but can be most interesting as a group or partner activity when participants can compare their data.

We’ve put together a list of many of these programs, organized by subject (i.e. birds, insects, invasive plants, etc.) Pick one that interests you – or pick several!
