‘Citizen Science’ refers to the cooperation between scientists and nonscientists in collecting data, monitoring animal populations, participating in bird counts, and doing many other types of scientific work aimed at contributing to knowledge and addressing conservation and environmental issues. Our 2010 Connecticut State of the Birds report celebrates the accomplishments and contributions of Citizen Scientists, discusses successful Citizen Science projects, and lists many opportunities with governmental and non-profit organizations.
Connecticut Audubon Society trains and works with Citizen Scientists on many projects based in our Centers. Some of our current projects are:
