Citizen Science

Help contribute to meaningful scientific research—while having fun

Citizen Science involves everyday individuals or groups volunteering to help scientists with their research, advance scientific knowledge, and solve real-world problems, particularly in the area of conservation.

Just about anyone can be a Citizen Scientist—no formal science background is necessary. All it takes is the interest in nature and conservation, a little bit of training, and the willingness to volunteer some time.

Audubon offers fun, meaningful Citizen Science projects that enable people to observe birds and share their information with scientists and each other. Volunteers are an integral part of these scientific endeavors. See below for information about our Citizen Science opportunities.
