The Field Guide to Citizen Science


The Field Guide to Citizen Science: How You Can Contribute to Scientific Research and Make a Difference by Darlene Cavalier, Catherine Hoffman, and Caren Cooper. For anyone who wants to engage their brain, get outside, learn from and contribute to important work, and/or find community with similar interests, citizen science is a wonderful avenue to do all that and more. This guide includes the whys and hows of citizen science as a whole, and descriptions of 50 unique projects that you (yes you!) can be a part of, organized by location (online, at home, near water, etc). A perfect undertaking for just about anyone, from young aspiring scientists to adults who may have missed their calling, and from families looking for activities to do together to individuals looking for reasons to get out into nature on their own.
