Citizen Science: Everyone Can Pitch In

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMER

The participation of non-professionals in scientific research is proving increasingly valuable to environmental studies, management, and policymaking, as well as to the¬†“citizen scientists”¬†themselves. Host Laura Garzon @EarthMediaArts journeys into new frontiers of citizen science with three guests: Greg Newman of the Citizen Science Association, CitSci.org @CitSci, and Colorado State University (Natural Resource Ecology Laboratory); Scott Loarie @loarie of iNaturalist.org @inaturalist (California Academy of Sciences); and Deborah Zierten of Save the Redwoods League @savetheredwoods.
