What is citizen science?
In case it helps, we’re defining citizen science as
“the practice of public participation and collaboration in scientific research to increase scientific knowledge.” – National Geographic
“projects in which volunteers partner with scientists to answer real-world questions.” – Cornell Lab of Ornithology
This event is hosted by the University of Minnesota Extension with additional sponsorship from the U of M Office of the Vice President for Research. Planning and presentation support provided, in part, by Minnesota Sea Grant.
