A combination of learning, field work and volunteer research
Citizen science programs bring citizens who have time and an interest with species at risk, wildlife, or plants together with the scientists that need their help.
Do you want to build your network of connections in the natural sciences? Are you interested in a gaining practical experience to build your resume? Have you ever wanted to conduct or help scientific research?
If you have answered yes to any of these questions, then consider participating in a Citizen Science project.
Since so many Citizen Science projects exist, to make it easier for you, we've complied a list of a few of the most popular. See our Citizen Science page for more information.
Identification apps are becoming increasingly popular for citizens, researchers, and students such as those taking our Wildlife and Fisheries Conservation and our Conservation and Restoration Ecology (CARE) programs.
Do you have a mobile device that can download apps? Do you want to learn to identify plants and animals by sight and by sound?
If you have answered yes to these questions, then check out our list of apps we’ve compiled for your on our Identification Apps page.
