Citizen Science Opportunities

Volunteer citizen scientists contribute valuable information for many Conservation Department projects. There are many different surveys for volunteers with varying abilities and time commitments. Whether it’s watching in your own backyard on the Backyard Winter Bird Survey or helping spot eagles on Great Bay in the Winter Bald Eagle Survey, surveying for Rusty Blackbirds in Pittsburg or recording information on your local Bank Swallow colony, there are many opportunities to help.
