Citizen science is for everyone!

Did you know that YOU can contribute to real scientific research and stay physically distanced at the same time? Through citizen science programs you can help monitor biodiversity, birds, water, weather, seasonal change and more using observation skills and your smartphone or computer. There are even projects you can do without leaving your couch! In this presentation we will highlight a variety of citizen science projects anyone can do regardless of prior experience — and a few that can draw on expertise if you have it.

This event is sponsored by Whitewater State Park and the Friends of Whitewater State Park.
