What is citizen science? Citizen science involves people just like you collecting information and sharing that information with researchers. Anyone can participate and this information can help scientists make real discoveries about the world around us. Many of these projects can be done from the comfort of your home and others can be done by observing nature. Some projects might include recording the birds you see at your feeder, helping scientists understand how galaxies grow and evolve through a game program, snapshot safari helping to classify animals in images on line, documenting changes in nature, using smartphones to take photos of wild animal food sources, and so on. If you are curious about a subject there most likely is a citizen science project for you. Learn about the initiatives by clicking on the citizen science websites tab and become a citizen scientist.
