Citizen Science


Supporting Citizen Science

Citizen science, or civic science, is a research collaboration between professional scientists, students, and volunteers that enable collection of data and/or scientific analysis. When facilitated by skilled practitioners, it can yield particularly deep civic engagement as community members better understand ecosystem complexity and the role of science in management decisions while contributing critical data for informing solutions and playing a role in advocating for lasting change. The Foundation supports citizen science through grants, technical assistance, and helping connect public agencies, practitioners, and volunteers.
