Citizen Science Programs

Citizen Science programs are a great way to be involved in nature research while enjoying the great outdoors.  All of the information that is collected on these days are sent to national databases to help track migration, diversity, and other wildlife population concerns.  No experience is necessary for these projects.  Trained specialists will lead each group.  Be a part of something big.  Become a citizen scientist!
