Citizen science is the practice of public participation and collaboration in scientific research to increase scientific knowledge. Through citizen science, people share and contribute to data monitoring and collection programs. If you or your family are interested in observing the beautiful dragonflies that zip by this summer, then we have a few citizen science project for you!
