Get Involved with Citizen Science!


Birds, insects, amphibians, plants, water. There’s a citizen science project for almost every interest. Some projects run only a short time—a night, a month, a season—while others are open-ended and collect data for years. 

Many citizen science projects rely on volunteers who explore natural areas to collect data and take photos. Often, volunteers use cellphone apps or online tools to share photos and data with researchers.

But there’s still a need for good old-fashioned, hands-on help. Maybe you’d like to collect river water samples or escort amphibians to safety?

Read our October 2019 Wren newsletter to learn about citizen science projects in the SVT region. We've also collected links to many other projects that you might find interesting. Know of something that's not on our list? Let us know so we can include it!
