Becoming a Citizen Scientist: Saturday, September 10 at 11 a.m.

Citizen-scientists are volunteers who assist in collecting data and reporting field observations for conservation practices and research across a wide range of natural topics; wildlife, plants, weather, water, etc. The only requirements in becoming a Citizen scientist are an interest and willingness to participate. Ben Johnston (Citizen-scientist) has been involved with Citizen-Based Monitoring (CBM) since 2008. He participates in numerous programs, and readily describes his CBM hobby as an obsession. Come and hear about the general duties and obligations of a Citizen-scientist, learn about some specific programs (Cranes, Bats, Frogs, Turtles, Plants...), and how you can find a CBM project to meet your personal interests.
