Getting Nerdy with Nature: Using Citizen Science to Inspire Stewardship
Citizen Science is a versatile tool that can benefit and enhance programs of all types and sizes. Regardless of experience level, anyone can become a Citizen Scientist, collecting and contributing valuable information. The data collected from these programs can be used in a variety of ways by researchers, universities, non-profits, and other organizations. Learn how the National Aquarium is using Citizen Science to inspire a new generation of environmental stewards, and how you can use Citizen Science to benefit your program too!
