I love participating in citizen science projects. I am starting my second winter with Project FeederWatch counting the birds at my feeders.
But, I would like to do more. SciStarter can help me and you find projects that will help humans to live in harmony with the land.
How about ProjectSquirrel? You help scientists understand squirrel biology by counting squirrels in your neighborhood.
Philly Tree Map, helps identify and count trees in Philadelphia’s urban forest.
There are many free/low-cost projects focusing worldwide, nation or region wide. There are projects for suitable for children, adults and school class projects. It is a great resource for homeschoolers.
You might find a great project you can get involved in at SciStarter.
And don’t forget enter your research results in your nature or naturalist’s field journals.
