Citizen science projects help scientists with research about our environment. Labs provide instructional tools for the public and a way for people to submit their data and observations. Projects can be quick, like watching 10-second videos of birds and reporting what you saw in a survey. Other projects involve self-guided training to learn how to identify species or life stages of birds, butterflies or other wildlife. There are also great citizen science project for kids!
